Pine Needle Basket class Register View Cart

Gorham Recreation has teamed up with Rewild Maine to offer a coiled pine needle basket class. White Pine (Maine’s state tree and state flower) and Red Pine are ubiquitous throughout the state and provide a vital pool of resources for human and non-human Mainers alike. Pine needles are beautiful, and strong! They can be coiled and sewn together to make lovely usable baskets and/or adorably tiny ones.

Students will learn to identify, gather and harvest, properly store and process, and weave with pine needles. You will learn 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.
