Edmond and Brian J. Theriault have been making traditional snowshoes for over thirty years. Because this is a dying art form, we have put together this DVD/VHS video.
 It shows how we get the ash trees, in the woods, the cow hides, and making traditional snowshoes. We invented our own molds, built most of our tools. We cut up the tree into strips of wood for the frames. We take the hides, fleshing the skin and scraping the hair off, then we cut and size the rawhide for weaving, our own three way patterns, on the snowshoes.

Fort Kent, Maine– For father and son Brian J. and Edmond Theriault, making snowshoes has been a four-decade passion that has taken them from novices to world-class craftsmen. However, fearing that the art may be dying out among the wider population, the duo have written a book to help anyone create their own traditional snowshoes with relative ease.
Good time to start making tools and getting ready for the upcoming season.
