The course teaches traditional techniques for working birch bark dating right back to the early Middle Ages. We use finished blade blanks Students learn to work the sheets of birch bark by hand into a knife sheath, which they then line with leather and stiffen with beeswax. The knife handle, to be made from your choice of solid wood with a layer of birch-bark flakes, will be ergonomically shaped and made to your own design. The material has a unique feel and provides an excellent grip, even with damp hands. As well as practical tips and tricks, you will also learn some of the theory and culture of birch bark You can buy blade blanks with a stick tang from us at the start of the course or bring your own with you.
