WildCrafting is Kaniksu Land Trust’s signature after-school program in which students learn to work with their hands on a variety of diverse traditional crafts. Each session of WildCrafting features different projects, including: bow-drill fire making kits, coal burned bowls, arrow making, salmon skin tanning, and soapstone carving.
WildCrafting is based in the principle that working with your hands is a valuable skill many of us have forgotten, and helps provide students with a safe place to explore their creativity. Studies have shown that using your hands to create things can actually improve your mental health, not to mention the fact that children need opportunities like this to develop their fine motor skills. By offering a program like WildCrafting, KLT is offering a chance for our community to receive the benefits of doing handiwork.
WildCrafting is offered in four-week sessions during the school year.
