Name: Longleaf Pine Needle Basket Workshop
Date: July 15, 2017
Time: 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM CDT
Event Description:
Join basket artist and expert botanist Brittney Hughes to learn the basic steps to creating a coiled basket from longleaf pine needles. Each participant will learn the basic skills of pine needle basketry and take home their very own creation. The art of coiling baskets is universally common to indigenous peoples. Coiling is the technique of creating baskets and art from pine needles and was a part of pre-Columbian Native American crafts. Today, pine needle baskets and art are made primarily for decorative purposes. All materials (pine needles, thread, and small center for basket) will be furnished. Funding for this program is provided by the Northeast Alabama Community Foundation Stringfellow Health Fund Grant through the Conservation Education Institute of the Georgia-Alabama Land Trust. Pre-registration required. Call 256-237-6766 to reserve your child’s spot.
