Pine Needle Basket Weaving Circle


In the spirit of a traditional quilting, knitting or sewing circle, we will gather virtually to learn a skill, connect and share stories. For hundreds of years, women have gathered together to share the labor of making blankets and clothes for their families. They expressed their creativity, told stories, gossiped and connected – long before social media or even phones! In our “circle” we will be weaving a basket from locally gathered pine needls and also simply connecting with one another for fun. Each session will have three parts: a check in (how is everyone feeling, higlights of the week), a technical part (everyone shares tips and help) and an inspirational one (stories and poems). We will provide the pine needles and other supplies and drop them at your house.

AGES: 10+, minimum 3 kids, no max

DATES: 4 sessions, 1.5 hours each, dates TBD

PROJECT FEE:  approx $15 for strong needles and wax thread
