Birch and Quill Earrings Workshop


In this youth workshop, Lorrie Ann will explain our connection to, and uses for, the gifts that Mother Earth provides.

Young women can gather with Lorrie and explore how to work with birch bark and porcupine quills. At the end of the day, each participant will have these lovely pair of earrings and hold a little more knowledge on how to gather and prepare natural materials.
