Explore the beauty and simplicity of this ancient form of basket making. Learn how to work with pine needles to create a small coiled basket using the universal weaving technique of “coiling” — using a tapestry needle and waxed linen thread or raffia to bind the bundles of needles together as they spiral out and then up. Information about how to source materials including gathering, preparing, and preserving needles will be covered. All materials are included. We will have a potluck lunch, giving everyone time to socialize with the instructor and fellow students.
