During this class, you will learn how to weave a star ornament from birch bark!

You will learn about sustainable birch bark harvest, and gain a new appreciation for this local resource.  Materials will be prepped for you, but you will also be provided a demo of how to prep those materials.

You will be shown several examples of what can be accomplished using this weaving technique.

Students who complete a star can learn how to make birch bark beads, which can be strung along with their ornament. This is a process with a learning curve- though it may feel clumsy at first, the end result is one to be proud of.

Additional star kits will be available for purchase for interested students.

Students to bring:

  • Good pair of scissors

Your registration fee includes all supplies. Just add your creativity!

Please bring water/snacks and lunch if needed, as there are no food facilities at the school.

Please note: We’ve changed how each student pays for the material used during each in-person class.  Each registration fee now combines the material fee and the instructor fee.  We’ve made this change based on feedback from instructors and participants: instructors can focus more on teaching their class, and students don’t need to remember to bring the material fee to pay directly to the instructor.


NOTE: Be aware we may cancel class if a minimum number of registrations is not reached. We work to balance teachers’ need to plan for a class with students’ busy schedules — not an easy task. Please register as early as possible!
