Traditional Pine Needle Crafting with De Segar

50.00

Pine needle basketry is a craft very rich in history. It is revered as one of the oldest forms of basket weaving in the world. It makes use of a basketmaking technique called coiling, a technique that has remained virtually unchanged since it was first developed.  Along with their sheer beauty, pine needle baskets are very sustainable and eco-friendly, using natural elements for construction.

Join Delayne Segar for this hands-on workshop, and experience making your very own pine needle basket or necklace.  Each student will be provided supplies to make a pine needle basket roughly 3.5” wide x 4” long x 1.25” tall - OR – a necklace pendant.  Based on your needle & thread skills, you may or may not be able to finish your project in class, although you may stay beyond the workshop hours to complete your piece if you wish.
