Pine needle art is among the oldest crafts known and pre-dates pottery. For over 9,000 years, Native Americans have made such baskets for storing food and supplies. Although baskets can be made from a variety of materials, including sweet grass and raffia, among the most beautiful are from pine needles. We will discuss how to gather and prepare your own red pine needles from the lakes and woods around Ely. You'll take home your own woven pine needle basket.
