Description

Join master Algonquin craftperson Chuck Commanda in a beautiful setting along the banks of the Madawaska River to learn how to make a traditional Algonquin birch bark basket. In this workshop you will learn the basics of basket making and take home your own unique creation.

Chuck is from Kitigan Zibi, Quebec, where he was at a very young age by his grandparents William and Mary Commanda how to create many items from birch bark, including basket and birch bark canoes. Chuck has dedicated his life to making canoes and practicing basketry full-time for the past ten years.

All supplies, materials and refreshments are included in the registration cost.

Lunch will be available for purchase from The Mad Musher Restaurant.
