About the Event
Join us for an informal workshop to learn how to make a pine bark basket. We will learn about the white pine tree, how to harvest the bark and use it to make baskets and other creations. Each person will harvets pieces of bark and make one or more baskets in the style of their choosing. Supplies will be provided.
