 Speaking of exploration and cold weather, Peta Barrett is coming from Ely to lead a 2-day workshop on making Ojibwe-style traditional snowshoes.  Chances are, she’ll just be back from some adventure, with a great story or three to share.  While modern snowshoes may have a better p.r. department, these traditional Native American-style snowshoes are about the same weight and actually better at handling deep snow than more recent designs with modern materials.  Plus, they’ll be fitted to you specifically, made by you with care, and they are just the thing to bring the north woods direct to your living room!  You must register by October 1, include your height and weight so the correct materials arrive in time for the class.
