In 2017 I had the pleasure of teaching three pine needle coiling baskets at the Mattawoman Creek Art Center. In June I taught Beginning Pine Needle Basketry where we made small baskets on walnut slice centers. This is a picture of some of the beautiful baskets under construction.
In October I taught Pine Needle Jewelry with a large group of enthusiastic students who produced bracelets and pendants.
In November it was Pine Needle Ornaments. Below are some of the bell ornaments and mini baskets under construction.
Teaching the coiling classes has been a wonderful experience for me. I get to teach something I love and meet wonderful, creative people in the process!
I hope to have the opportunity to teach more classes in 2018. I will be starting with a Beginning Pine Needle Basketry class this spring. Please let me know if you are interested!
