|Gary Enosse - Instructor
- Birch Bark Basketry
I am from the Odawa Nation, Wikwemikong on Manitoulin Island. I worked underground as a miner. A rock burst almost ended it.
I began experimenting with fire and wood, pyrography. I taught myself how to make baskets using birch bark, now I make anything from mini bases, canoes to lampshades.
My work is known in Canada, U.S.A. and as far as Norway.
Murielle and I are blessed with six children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Our landing spot, Elliot Lake is home.
