Bark Basket Workshop

In this workshop, learn the traditional skill of folded bark baskets - how to ‘slip’ bark from a precut log, score and bend to transform into a basket of your own. Simple baskets have been fashioned from bark by cultures around the world, including in Maryland by the eastern woodland Indians from tulip polar. In Maryland, there is a short window between May and June when tulip poplar bark can easily be removed and shaped into a basket. This small-group class, suitable for beginners, will focus on smaller baskets such as water bottler holders.

All supplies are included. Bring a water bottle and a small fixed-blade knife if you have one. (There will be some available to borrow.) Workshop will be cancelled if minimum registration isn’t met.
