Pine Needle Basketry

Sunday May 6th - 10am to 2pm at Walnut Creek Park

Cost: $25 each (kids 16 and under can attend for free with paying adult)
The Buddy System: Bring a friend and you each pay $20!

Join us as we explore the art of pine needle basketry and learn all about the native skills from the east coast Native Americans. Natives would coil and stitched pine needles to create feed baskets and vessels to transport water. Today, pine needle basket makers are still using the original coiling and stitching technique as the Native Americans once did. Artists can make a number of different designs using different types of needles and different stitches including placing needles on top of gourds. Participants will learn everything from how to harvest the materials needed to create a pine needle basket as well as weaving a basket of their own. This is a fun hands on meet up for all ages!

Students should bring:
Full water bottle
Snacks (if you want to snack while making your basket)
Camp Knife (folding or non-folding)
Ready to learn attitude

This workshop is limited to 10 students
