Learn how to make a pine needle basket with Anne Easby. This workshop will consist of two afternoon sessions; participants will be expected to work on their own if needed in between sessions, depending upon the size of the basket they choose to make. You’ll be immersed in the world of pine needle basketry, and by the end of the workshop, you’ll proudly carry home your very own finished basket, showcasing your newfound skills. No need to worry about materials; we’ve got you covered – everything you need will be provided. Join us, unlock your inner artist, and let your creativity flow through the art of pine needle basket making! You’ll not only learn the art of making a beautiful plain basket but also get equipped to infuse your future projects with beads and other enchanting materials.

THE INSTRUCTOR:

Anne Easby is a long-time resident of Fredericton. She has taught herself a variety of crafts from stained glass to cement works to chainsaw carving. Several years ago, while spending the winter in Florida, she discovered the art of making pine-needle baskets. One of the things that appeals to her is that, as is the case with most of her crafts, the baskets are all made with natural and recycled materials.
