Pine Needle Basket Weaving

with artist, Elizabeth Bear

Join us at the SLO Botanical Garden as we explore the art of pine needle basket weaving in the Oak Glen Pavilion on Saturday, May 19 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”  ~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.

Register through Eventbrite or call 805.541.1400x303 to pay over the phone. 

Workshop Cost is $100 for Garden members and $130 for non-members.
