Greetings! This is a reminder that Week 8 of the Birch Bark Canoe Project is Monday, July 1st from 5-9 pm in the North Classroom at the Ely Folk School. Bring comfortable leather gloves.
This week’s focus: preparing spruce roots and lashing gunwales; riving cedar log sections into ribs and planks; carving pegs, planks, and ribs; and soaking gunwale caps and ribs for bending next week.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this community building project!
