Weave a set of snowshoes at Deep Portage workshop

Learn how to weave your own traditional snowshoes at a one-day workshop being offered at Deep Portage Learning Center in Hackensack on Saturday, Dec. 7.

Participants will weave a traditional Ojibwe style set of snowshoes. Kits include wooden frame and nylon lacing, plus instructions. Instructors will be on hand to guide participants through the process.

Weaving snowshoes takes time, so the workshop will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Registration is limited to 12 participants on a first-come, first-served basis. Call to register with Kathy Braswell at 218-682-2325.

The $150 fee includes the snowshoe kit (wooden frame, lacing and written instructions), bindings, instruction, coffee, snacks and lunch.
