Join us Tuesday and Wednesday evenings between 5 and 9 pm at Ely Folk School to help build our new birch bark canoe or just visit and watch.
Last week we successfully formed a large birch bark canoe hull with lots of hot water, clamps, and helping hands.
This week’s Agenda (August 15 & 16):
- Lace spruce root horizontal seams and vertical gores
- Cut out birch bark scallops for gunwale and side bark reinforcing
- Position, clamp, and peg gunwale-thwart assembly in canoe
The Birch Bark Canoe Project brings people together to have fun, share knowledge, strengthen community, enhance tourism, and build a traditional canoe.
