Native Americans have been making beautiful Pine Needle Baskets since the beginning of time.

In this workshop, we’ll learn a bit about Pine Needle basketry history, including the cultural regions (Turtle Island) from where they’re harvested.

You will be using majestic Long Leaf Pine Needles to create not one but TWO completely different baskets.
Grab a friend and let’s make some baskets!
