The Native American art of decorating birch bark boxes and other ornaments with porcupine quill “embroidery” is a beautiful traditional craft. The work of skilled quillwork artists is highly prized by collectors and museums. See an example and slides of some intricate and beautiful quilled birch bark containers. Then learn to do this unusual art form by using natural materials to create a quilled birch bark pendant, pin, or barrette to take home.
