Snowshoe Lacing Feb-Mar 2016-page-001Snowshoe Lacing Workshop (Feb-March)

You can make them, you can use them, you can hang them on the wall, or you can give them as a gift! Snowshoes are challenging, yet fun to make. Snowshoes are beautiful, yet useful. Snowshoes are relatively inexpensive, yet they can last a lifetime.
Learn the art of snowshoe lacing with Natural Resource Educator Julie Fox from Wisconsin Interstate Park. Join Julie on a Saturday and a Tuesday evening for a historical look at snowshoeing and hands-on instruction to lace your own pair of snowshoes from a kit.
The Ojibwa-style snowshoe kit includes unvarnished wood frames, nylon lacing, and H-style bindings. (More…)
