In this workshop participants will work with longleaf pine needles to create a beautiful and refined basket using coiling. Coiling is an ancient technique in which bundles of material are sewn together in a spiral pattern using a wrapping strand to build the basket. In this basket, using a wooden round as the basket center, you will begin with a line stitch and soon progress to learn a variety of other stitches, including V stitch, wheat stitch, and core wrapping. Depending on the colors of embroidery floss you choose, the overall pattern and look of your basket will be totally unique. This workshop is great for either beginners or those who have coiled with other materials and want to learn stitch patterns and advance their skills.
