$65.00 – $70.00
TRADITIONAL PONDEROSA PINE NEEDLE COIL BASKET MAKING
with Jean Stark
SATURDAY, 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
April 11 (1 SESSION) OR June 13 (1 SESSION)
This is the same class, offered on two different days! Choose the one that fits your schedule best. Create a traditional coiled basket from local Ponderosa pine needles. Learn how to use embellishments from nature, different stitches and patterns, as well as sculptural techniques. Beginning with collecting the pine needles to the completion of a project, coiling is a meditative experience that connects one to nature as well as to basket makers who have passed on their knowledge through generations. Jean will share history and personal preferences as she guides and encourages you in making your own unique pine needle basket. To take advantage of time, students are encouraged to bring their lunch.
