Create your own Elm Bark Berry Basket With David Flaugher


Create your own Elm Bark Berry Basket With David Flaugher


Join David Flaugher and I for our second year teaching this class! Elm Trees are an indigenous tree that have been historically used to make baskets and containers of all shapes and sizes. During the course of the class you will learn basic ecology of Elm trees, how and when to peel the bark to keep the tree alive, how to use other natural products to put your basket together, and finally how to create a basket that can last you many years of foraging.

This skill is a skill that can last you a lifetime once you learn how. And it will leave you with a desire to do away with all of the plastic containers in your life!
