Birch Bark Biting Workshop invests in community artisanship

Participants in the birch bark biting work shop learned the old art of biting art into thin layers of birch from a well-known artist of the Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish (Gun Lake) Band of Pottawatomi Indians, Kelly Church.

Birch bark bitings can be used in storytelling, as patterns for quillwork and beadwork, as well as finished pieces of art.
