Pine needle basket making - Dec. 8
Learn the basic techniques needed to make a small, pine needle basket in one day.
Pine needle baskets use a technique in basketry called coiling. Coiling begins at the center of a basket and grows in spiral rounds, each attached to the round before. You will start your basket with a decorative center and will use the basic swirling stitch, giving your basket a solid hand and attractive appearance. Class topics will cover:
- Basic swirling stitch
- Attaching pine needle coils to a decorative center
- Addition of beads
- Basket shaping

You will go home with a completed, palm size, unique pine needle basket!
