Birch Bark Basket-Making – Workshop – Sold Out

September 16, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

SOLD OUT

Join us for a full-day birch bark basket-making workshop with master woodworker Mark Blieske. Participants will come away with an appreciation of the practice as both a historical and contemporary medium of usable art, along with their own small finished basket that can be used while out collecting berries or as a storage container.

 

The workshop will begin with a 1.5-hour introduction to the Museum’s extensive birch bark craft collection led by Mark and a Manitoba Museum staff member. Participants will see birch bark baskets on display in the Museum Galleries and go behind-the-scenes to see the large and historically significant Custer Family collection. These works show the economic and cultural vitality of specific regions of Manitoba and illustrate different Indigenous cultural approaches to birch bark as a decorative and practical medium.

 

Following the tour, participants will get hands-on experience in a 4-hour birch bark basket-making session with Mark Blieske, which will cover the basics of basket-making, identification of suitable birch trees, spruce/pine roots splitting and collecting, and discussion of historic, traditional, and contemporary techniques and technology.
