Making Baby Cradleboards

$20.00 (+ $20.00 for non-residents)

Description

A cradleboard is a Native American baby carrier made of a plank of wood. The baby is swaddled (wrapped tightly in a small blanket) and then she or he is strapped to a flat board with a wooden hoop attached to the top that works like a roll bar. The teacher will demonstrate the process of bending wood splints for the hoop, and preparing a flat board for the cradle. Students will then assemble and finish a cradle board and use wood burning tools to etch designs on the cradle board. The first session will meet off site, and the remaining classes will meet in the Arts Cottage.
