ENWS Pine Needle Baskets 2024

February 17

February 17 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

10:00am - 3:00pm

Join Earth Native Wilderness School to explore the ancient art of pine needle basket making and learn all about this primitive skill from the east coast natives. By stitching a coil of pine needles together, natives would create baskets and vessels for food, water and tools. Today pine needle basket makers are still using the original coiling and stitching method that the natives once did. Artists can create a wide variety of baskets with different types of designs by using unique stitching patterns and bending the needles to very unique shapes.

​Students will learn everything from how to harvest the needles, soak the needles for use, create natural gauge tools to ensure a consistent coil size and how to use them to make their very own basket from locally sourced pine needles. This is a fun, hands on nature craft for ages 9 to adult!
