Plaited Birch Bark Basket


with Zackary Rouda

Birch bark is one of the only basket materials that can be woven into baskets while old, dead and dry! To make plaited birch bark baskets, we can use the old, dead, dry bark that we find lying on the ground in the forest. It’s a great way to make something strong, useful and beautiful from discarded material - no felling required. Learn the basics of identification, gathering, processing materials, and storage; and create a beautiful diagonally-plaited birch bark basket.

Material fee $30 payable to instructor the night of class.
