In this workshop, learn the traditional skill of folded bark baskets – how to ‘slip’ bark from a precut log, score and bend to transform into a basket of your own. Simple baskets have been fashioned from bark by cultures around the world, including in Maryland by the eastern woodland Indians from tulip polar. In Maryland, there is a short window between May and June when tulip poplar bark can easily be removed and shaped into a basket. This small-group class, suitable for beginners, will focus on smaller baskets such as water bottler holders. Age 18+ Each participant will leave with a small basket they have made.
Instructors: Clare Walker, Master Naturalist and Master Gardener
