RAgee7-webJoin this class and learn to make beautiful baskets from pine needles. Using the process of coiling, you will be taught to weave swirling, interlocking stitches. You will learn how to begin a basket both around a centerpiece and with a thread wrapped center, how to add beads and other decorations, and how to do a wrapped coil. This class is appropriate for beginners and other basket makers who would like to learn a new technique. (Motivated children 11 and older are welcome upon approval of the instructor.)
