Pine Needle Weaving Class

  • San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden 3450 Dairy Creek Road San Luis Obispo, CA, 93405 United States (map)

Join us at the SLO Botanical Garden as we explore the ancient art of pine needle basket weaving in the Oak Glen Pavilion on Saturday, June 3 from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM.

Artist Elizabeth Bear will guide attendees through the process of creating beautiful, fragrant and sustainable pieces of artwork at this intimate workshop.

“A basket reflects the person who makes it… There’s no machine that can make a basket” states Ms. Bear.

Just bring sharp scissors, imagination and a bagged lunch, as Ms. Bear provides all materials and her masterful insight. Each participant will make their own basket and start a second basket to work on at home. Workshop also includes a lecture on sustainable harvesting and tree kindness.

Workshop Cost is $100 for Garden members and $130 for non-members.
Limited class size. To register call 805.541.1400×303.
