Spend four days working directly with the regionʼs most noted traditional artists, craftspeople, historians and naturalists in small group settings – with dozens of workshops for both adults and children. Forage for and prepare wild foods with experts, learn the traditional Ojibway process of gathering and preparing wild rice, make a birch bark basket with an Odawa artist, work with a master falconer, explore the waters around Drummond island in a replica 1870s wooden ship, and take home an assortment of beautiful and functional traditional crafts and new skills. Evenings feature acoustic music, star gazing and traditional storytelling by campfire.
This is a unique learning experience that offers an opportunity to celebrate our common traditions, how they originated and how they impact our lives today – while learning valuable arts and skills alongside expert instructors and specialists.
