Branches of white pine can be trimmed to provide a wonderful basket material that is flexible and easy to sew – even if a little sappy.
In this workshop, participants will learn the steps from choosing bark, cutting and peeling it, making a pattern, and constructing a variety of different shaped vessels. This style of basketry is fun, fast, and provides opportunity to get creative with decoration, material, and construction. Each person’s project will be unique! Participants will take home 1-2 small, completed baskets. All materials provided. Good for age 16+
