PINE NEEDLE BASKETS
with Kathleen Thacker
Pine Needle Baskets
Instructor: Kathleen Thacker
Sept 7th, 10 - 4
Cost $75 for members, $85 for nonmembers. $15 for supplies.
Class size limited to 5 (but see below).
Please bring a bag lunch; we’ll take a break mid-day.
Start with a bundle of pine needles and leave with a small coiled basket. You learn how to start with a base....a small piece of wood or a nut slice. You coil and “sew” together the coils to build up a basket. Lots of fun to watch it take shape. No prior skills needed. All materials and supplies are provided and included in the $15 supply fee.
The class will be limited to 5. However, we will take a waiting list. A fellow pine needle maker is trying to be available to help give individual help. If so, we will be able to increase class size.
