Birch Bark Canoe Building with Ray Mears and Pinock Smith – Day 5

Day 5 of Woodlore’s Birch Bark Canoe Building Course began with yet another beautifully sunny morning. With the canoe nearing completion, the team turned their focus to preparing the many ribs which will give the craft its finished shape, while continuing to stitch and bind the finished pieces together. When their hands were not needed elsewhere, students (along with special guest Lars Falt) progressed with the carving of their own canoe paddles, in readiness for launch day.

    Absolutely fantastic! I cannot wait to see the finished product, in all its glory, on the water.
    I am positively green with envy…I live in Ontario and haven’t been able to find any courses that even remotely compare with this one being offered by Woodlore. What a priceless experience!
