Birch Bark Canoe Project Extended to Fall

The Birch Bark Canoe Project has been extended into September and October and will meet on Sundays from 1-5 pm for eight weeks. We will meet in the North Classroom at the Ely Folk School (use alley door).
The next session, Week One of the Fall Schedule, will be on Sunday, September 8th from 1-5 pm. We will resume work on the new 20-foot canoe with a goal of completing it by October 27th. The first session includes carving pegs, planks, and ribs, lashing gunwales, constructing end frames, and pitching the interior hull. Please bring comfortable leather gloves.
