Pine Needle Basketry
With Sheri Smith of Pine Needle Creations
In this introductory class, students will learn how to create colorful coiled baskets, using pine needles, waxed linen, seed beads and a donut stone.
Students will learn to coil and shape the pine needles with a variety of stitches: swirl, mariposa and wrapped stitch. You will complete your unique basket by the end of the class.
The skills you learn in this workshop can later be used to create necklaces, Christmas ornaments and sculptural pieces.
Class instruction is individualized, so the class size will be limited to 6 students.
Pine needles, wire ring, crewel sewing needle, bees wax and written instructions are included in the class. You will need to bring the following supplies, which can be purchased at Harlequin:
Please have your supplies purchased before the day of class, and bring a snack or sack lunch to this all-day class.
