By the end of the day, you will learn all the skills necessary to start your own tradition of Pine Needle Basketry in your family. No previous experience is necessary. Class size is limited to 8 students.

Artist Statement

Many years ago, I bought a Pine Needle Basketry book and taught myself the basic techniques of coiled basketry. Since that time, I have grown to love this historic art form handed down through the ages from native Florida Indians to early pioneers. I have been teaching pine needle basketry to both children and adults ever since. A distinguishing feature of most pine needle creations is the delicate and varied stitching that holds the coils together. My pine needle baskets showcase these traditional methods interpreted with a contemporary flair.
