We recently wrapped up our Fall Nature Class Series with our last outing at Juniper Jungle Farm. What a great “Deer Day” it was! The kids learned about stalking, tracking, and they helped stretch a real deer hide! The kids were also really excited because we finally finished our Wildheart Rattle made from raw hide and corn kernals. The kids designed the shape of the rattle and are learning about the process from green hide to raw hide. We passed it around for the first time during the opening song. We hope to see everybody again this Spring!

It feels good to be working with an ancient art in a modern way. I have always loved the idea of making functional items, especially clothing, and there is nothing more important than footwear. Making footwear from scratch is tedious work, but extremely rewarding. I particularly love trying out new styles so if you have something in mind, let us know. – Dreamer
