Catching up with Skills students

Apprentices in our Ancestral Living Skills program have been busy finishing their pack baskets that will ultimately be used to carry a few sparse supplies on the Wilderness Survival Trek at the end of the program.  The students wove remarkable baskets to use for years and years to come.

Making pack baskets is a new addition this year.  We plan on offering pack baskets as a separate class, so keep an eye out for an updated schedule!

Students are also refining the skills of advanced firemaking, stone working and flintknapping.  We have had a lot of focused workshop time dedicated to mastering these foundation skills.
