In this video I show you how to make a simple birch bark bowl. Birch bark containers have been used for centuries by natives in the northern regions. They can be water-tight and can even be used to purify water via stone-boiling. Many kinds of containers can be made with birch bark. Because of the oils inside, the bark stays very malleable for quite some time.
