Interested in making your own tools for wild ricing? The Wisconsin Canoe Heritage Museum & Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary are teaming up to host a Wild Rice Push Pole & Knocking Stick Workshop on March 28th-30th from 6:00-9:00pm. In this three-evening class, you will make a tamarack and maple push pole and a set of white cedar knocking sticks to use for wild ricing using traditional hand tools and techniques. Tools and materials will be provided, but feel free to bring your own hand tools (such as: a draw knife, wood plane, and wood rasp) and personal protective equipment (safety glasses and gloves). You may work individually or bring a partner for the same price.
