Caribou Tufting Workshop

$0.00$95.00

Tufting creates rich, three-dimensional images by stitching and trimming bundles of caribou or moose hair onto hide or birch bark. Dyed hairs are gathered to form a bundle and are threaded into place and trimmed to form a bright tuft. This ancient art form is a valuable art form for our Indigenous nations.
