    Overview

    Having a device to carry all of your stuff in is a must (especially for those of us who have lots of stuff)! Learn how to size, design, layout, cut out and lace your own buckskin shoulder bag. Each participant will choose their handmade walnut-dyed buckskin pieces. Then complete a small-sized custom fit shoulder bag. All materials and tools provided.

    Meet our new teacher, Jason Drevenak!

    Jason grew up on his family’s homestead in West Virginia hunting, fishing, hiking, building shelters and making tools. After serving as a medic in the Army and subsequently returning to college, he made a career of teaching people how to engage with the outdoors through various businesses. As an established teacher and founder of the North American Bushcraft School, Jason is setting new roots here in Maryland and West Virginia!



    Beginning in 2022, Fox Haven will pay $2 from every ticket sale to the Piscataway Land Trust as a LandBack tax for the land Fox Haven inhabits. Land taxes to indigenous nations function similarly to paying rent or a home mortgage. Payments such as a mortgage provide access to living space, whereas LandBack taxes recognize our access to stolen Indigenous land.

    The Piscataway Land Trust is a long-term Indigenous-led effort led by the 501(c)(3) Cedarville Band of Piscataway Indians Inc. to restore and rematriate ancestral land and sovereignty in the Chesapeake region to Piscataway and other Chesapeake Indigenous people.
