Using a variety of materials, including red and yellow cedar bark, brown ask splint, birch bark, colored waxed linen thread, colored and copper wire, beads, yarn, sweetgrass, and other fun materials, you will make two wearable pouches over molds, to hold your cell phones and other necessary items. Using your creative instincts, no two will be the same. You can make them to use as a necklace, a shoulder bag or a crossover carrier. Carry straps may be chosen from a braided waxed linen or poly cord. Pamela will teach twining, over under weave, and twills. Participants should be able to finish two pouches over the weekend.
