Pine Needle Basket Weaving
Cherokee descendant Leona Nelson show you how to make two types of baskets and give you materials to take home to make a third small basket. In Native tradition, basket-weavers would sit together and share stories and catch up while weaving. It is a perfect place to make friends, and you all walk away with baskets worth $30-40 on the market and a skill to use on your own.

This course is work intensive for the teacher, as she has to prepare all the materials for each student, and soften the needles before class. Therefore it is by preregistration only, at least three days before class. You would need to let me know if you are attending by email, and mail in a down payment that arrives here by May 15th. The price of the class is $50. Please send in $25 and pay the rest when you arrive.
