Birch leather refers to the soft and flexible bark of the birch tree. The essential oils contained in the bark have a natural preserving effect on the food stored in these birch bark containers. The course teaches a traditional glueless method, which you will use to make two round storage containers yourself by hand. You will learn to select and cleave the birch bark, the centuries-old dovetail-like joining technique for creating container blanks, how to sew the top and bottom edges, and how to insert the base and lid. A natural, food-safe surface finish completes the object.
