Friday, December 6, 2019
12:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Tuition: $45 Materials: $25

In this easy-going, entry-level class, you’ll learn the simple skills to create your own pine needle basket and spark a passion that will last a lifetime.  

You will be shown one way of doing things. You can then continue with that or let your imagination run wild. There are no rules, no right or wrong ways of doing things, no patterns to follow, and no straight lines!     “The perfection of Nature is its imperfection.”

Using long leaf pine needles from the southern United States , waxed sinew and your choice of wooden basket centers, you’ll create your own 4-6” basket. Enhancements, such as beads and charms, will be available for purchase to add that special touch that personalizes it just for you. 

Come along and join in a fun-filled class and learn a new skill!
