Every Sunday in July, stop by the Abbe Museum and learn about the tradition of Wabanaki birchbark etching. You will be able to handle real birchbark baskets and other items while you learn about how this process is done. Stay after the interactive portion and practice your own etching skills! Every participant will have a chance to etch their own scratch postcard to send to loved ones.
