Pine Needle Basket Workshop
A basket weaving workshop will be taught in the Grand Hall at Fort Walla Walla Museum. The instructor will be Maribeth Bergstrom. Students will create a small pine needle basket that will be sewn together using synthetic sinew. Pine needle coils are sewn together with a tapestry needle with different decorative stitches to create a small flat or oval basket. It will take most students the entire four hours to complete a basket. Some students may finish earlier, some will take a little longer. Students should expect to stay for the duration of the class for instruction and assistance. Participants should wear older clothing as the pine needles will be damp. The cost for this workshop is $25 for members of Fort Walla Walla Museum, and $30 for non-members. It is recommended for adult and senior participants; the minimum recommended age for participation is 14 years. Please register early as space is limited.
