10.15.19 Pine Needle Baskets with Zack Rouda

Regular price $35.00 Sale

Tuesday, October 15th - 5:30pm - 8:00pm

White pine (Maine’s state flower) and Red pine are ubiquitous throughout the region and provide a vital pool of resources for human and nonhuman Mainers alike. Pine needles are beautiful, and strong! They can be coiled and sewn together to make jewelry, hats, lovely usable baskets and/or adorably tiny ones.

Learn to identify, regeneratively gather and harvest, properly store and process, and weave with pine needles. We'll cover the basics of coiled basketry, which is a global, ancient human skill, and create a wonderful pine-needle basket. Every participant will make a basket to take home.

Cost is $35 and includes all materials.
