The buckskin clothing symposium is for everyone. This is a workshop where you can pick the brains of those who sew and wear buckskin clothing. Tailoring ideas, patterns, stitching methods and much more can be learned in this informal setting conducted by Winter Count staff.
Trade blankets are held on a couple of nights, so bring your homemade crafts, raw materials, and other primitive treasures to share with the other traders. It's a night not to be missed.
The bulletin board is where the daily action begins. Each day new classes are posted and sign-ups happen. Over 30 classes a day take place from 9am to 5pm. We currently have over 70 staff confirmed to teach this year, so there will be plenty of outstanding instructional options to choose from.
A finger weaving class teaches the basic method of turning fiber strands into functional art.
Most classes are hands-on and practical. You can finish lots of small projects or tackle more complex skills like bow making, primitive process pottery or braintanning that will take you from start to finish.
The "ABO MART" is the camp outlet for treasures you can purchase from camp artisans and take home to share with friends.
