Marine Mills Folk School 550 Pine Street Marine on St Croix, MN 55047

Cost $160.00


In this three-day class students will lace snowshoes that will last for generations.  The Ojibwe-style snowshoe kit provides Minnesota made white ash frames, tubular nylon lacing, and instruction booklet. These traditional snowshoes are more adaptable to differing snow conditions than modern aluminum snowshoes. Taught by Peta Barrett, owner of Women’s Wilderness Discovery based out of Ely, MN, students also learn  how to put the finishing touches their snowshoes at home. Peta will share resource information for purchasing outdoor urethane to finish and protect the snowshoes, tips for maintaining them, and styles of bindings you may wish to purchase in the future.

Kids 12-18 can take the class with an adult. If both are taking home snowshoes, both have to pay for the whole class plus materials fee; otherwise, one class fee and one set of snowshoes if they are sharing snowshoes.

Students to bring: pencil, 12” ruler, sharp scissors or knife, a butane lighter
