Coiled Pine Needle Baskets - SOLD OUT

In this workshop participants will work with longleaf pine needles to create a beautiful and refined basket using coiling. Coiling is an ancient technique in which bundles of material are sewn together in a spiral pattern using a wrapping strand to build the basket. In this basket, using a wooden round as the basket center, you will begin with a line stitch and soon progress to learn a variety of other stitches, including V stitch, wheat stitch, and core wrapping. 

Depending on the colors of waxed linen or embroidery floss you choose, the overall pattern and look of your basket will be totally unique. Overall size is approximately 4-5" diameter and 2"-3" tall. This workshop is great for either beginners or those who have coiled with other materials and want to learn stitch patterns and advance their skills.

Please note this workshop is held in a heated tent and your hands will be in and out of water.

Skill level:  Beginner,  although fine motor skills are required and your hands will be in and out of water throughout the workshop.
