Sewing with Beaver Hides

Choice of Project: Hat or mittens
Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019
9:00 am – 5:00 pm


This class is limited to a maximum of 12 people.

Ely folks know there is no bad weather, only bad clothing. Beaver hats and mittens are just the answer for those deep wind chills, which Bert and Mark can attest to. You choose whether to make a hat or mittens and will learn how to measure, cut and sew pattern pieces from beaver hide. You will receive instructions for adding the liner, where needed, at home using glue and hand stitching. Students should bring the material of their choice for the liner.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS: BERT HYDE AND MARK OLSON ARE experienced woodsmen, do-it-yourselfer and folk school instructor who get a kick out of showing other people how to do cool things.
