Beth Homa-Kraus is a Minneapolis-based birch bark weaver. Beth introduces filthy basket talk, weaver fever and some very important bark removal techniques. She touches on the usefulness of trying new crafts and how important harvesting and processing material is to the final product. Adventures with skunks, floating down the Mississippi as a basket missionary, staining baskets with wine, and her guinea pig, Kip are woven into her story.

www.homa-style.com and on Instagram @birchbarkbeth. She LIVEstreams basket weaving on Instagram at 7PM Central Time.

Beth’s craft crushes include April Stone and Dennis Chilcote.
