Pine needle baskets are built on a solid base.

Staff Report

The Wildling Museum will offer a pine-needle basket workshop with Kathy Badrak and Karen Osland from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 3.

Participants will learn to coil a delicate pine needle basket after choosing from a variety of basket start bases, such as polished stone, pottery, or botanicals. Using flexible pine needles and waxed linen, students will learn the skills to create a 4-inch basket.

All levels of experience are welcome, and each student should be able to complete a basket in class. All materials and instruction are provided. Tuition is $40, plus an additional $10 to be paid on the day of the class to the instructors for materials.
