|The quiver... so far, so good.|
My main goal in the workshop this week is to finish the reproduction Beothuk birch bark quiver. Probably the biggest obstacles to overcome are that I don't have a lot of experience with working with birch bark like this or a pattern to work from. As far as I know, there are no surviving Beothuk quivers and for a visual reference I only have one contemporary drawing to refer to.
