Learn the 9000 year-old technique of pine-needle basket weaving with Honey Shashaah. Create a beautiful and unique treasure while learning about the Morango Native American basket history and knowledge of this amazing craft. Work with the beautiful long leaf yellow pine. Basket making has brought people together for centuries and its process represents the very essence of community. It is an ancient form of expression and links us to our pasts and our natural environments. If you are crafty or interested in earth-based crafts this is a wonderful opportunity to make something really special. Enjoy this meditative technique and walk away with your own functional artwork. No experience is necessary. All supplies are provided to create a small basket that you can continue to weave on your own after the class.

Pre-Registration is required, and space very is limited.
