Join this two day class and learn to make beautiful coiled baskets out of pine needles.

Using Canary Island pine needles, you will be taught how to weave beautiful swirling stitches that are identical on both sides of the basket and you will learn the techniques necessary to begin a basket around a walnut slide and with a thread wrapped center.

This class is appropriate for beginners and other basket makers who would like to learn a new technique. All materials are covered in the cost of the workshop, but a small pair of sharp scissors and a pair of needle nose pliers would be helpful.
