Participants will be able to discover how to BITE shapes (exercising at the same time “visualization”) into the birch bark creating symmetrical 2-D designs.
Engage in an ancient art, widely practiced through North America for centuries.
Samples of birch bark biting will be distributed to the group for sensory experience; feel, see, smell. The samples will provide information on lines of symmetry and geometric shapes.
Participants will also be guided to use the Birch Bark, by:
- Folding birch bark.
- Angles the birch bark can be placed between eye tooth.
- Creating lines and curves.
- Technique to unfold the bark, when the design is finished
