Traditional Skills Workshops

Traditional Skills Workshops started as a student idea to promote sustainability education at BSU.  Why not learn from those in the community that live it?  There is, on average, one workshop per month that focuses on a skill to increase self-sufficiency.  Workshops during the 2009-2010 academic year included brain tanning a deer hide, carding and spinning yarn, breakmaking, using natural dyes, and planning gardens. Have any ideas for a workshop? Let us know!
