Master the art of basketry. For this workshop, you’ll use locally gathered pine needles and a tapestry needle and raffia to create a small, fragrant pine needle basket. Michele Hament, a local artist who teaches basketry in the US and in Guatemala, will lead you in gathering and preparing materials along with the various stitches used to make baskets. Instructional handouts and all materials will be provided. At the end of the workshop, you will take home a basket that is approximately 2.5” tall x 4.5” wide.
Please note: Please bring a small pair of scissors and a bag lunch.
