Birch bark bitting!

Today at the Botanical Garden, we had a specialist in birchbark bitting. It's a very old artform that involves your teeth in the making of design that can be used for storytelling, beading, embroiderie and much more.

Thérèse Bégin is on of the few person left that still do and teaches this artform. In Quebec, Firsts Nations, have a tendencie to bite flower and plant patterns. As for the south, they do mostly bugs. Let me tell you that you are never certain of what you might end up with, but it's almost always beautifull!

I did a few that were kinda cool, but she always gets it right!

WISH OF THE DAY : Get a perfect picture tomorrow of anything! *granted*
