Birch bark baskets were sealed with spruce gum and used to store water underground to keep it cold. They also used them for storage and bowl shaped baskets were used for eating food. Work with Karen Cumberland and make your own birch basket as she retells the story of how baskets have been used for centuries. You will leave with your very own 5" birch basket.
