Coiled Pine Needles – Baskets and Jewelry!

Saturday August 7th

CLASS IS FULL! Email me at to get on the waitlist. The class is still a while out so it’s not unlikely that a spot will open up.


When scheduling this workshop I couldn’t decide between teaching baskets or jewelry and had gotten requests for each one… so I decided to do both! I will cover both unique starting techniques for each and students can decide if they want to focus on only baskets or jewelry, or do them both and make smaller projects. We will begin with longleaf pine needles and your choice of colorful waxed linen or embroidery floss sewing strands.  You are also able to make a shawl pin if you prefer. Join us in this playful workshop for an inventive take on a traditional art! Everything is provided, but if participants have particular necklace strands, hypoallergenic earrings, or beads they want to incorporate they are welcome to bring them.

Everyone at all skill levels is welcome. However, please note that these are small scale projects requiring dexterity and finger strength. Just email me if you have any injuries or questions about this aspect of it.

What does it look like to make a basket?

To see some examples of baskets and student experiences from single day workshops check out the blog posts below or visit my current/past workshops page. There is such an amazing array of students that take my classes and I’m always impressed with the creativity and individuality that comes out when a person sits down and allows themselves the time to make something beautiful with their hands.
