tues mornings Aug 3 & 10 8:15 - 10:15am at Abi’s Art in downtown Lanesville, Gloucester, MA this summer.  I would provide a kit of beads, center, linen thread, and pine needles to make your first basket with 2 Tues Morning in person instruction sessions for a $99 for both sessions. There would be limited space check out my basket website: to see examples of my work and a bit about my Pine Needle Basket Journey.

  1. I love the colours that you have used with your mystical weaving creations. I'm in Australia, the far west, and wanted to ask if you do online courses or have any written instructions for novices such as myself? I'm really curious about how you attach the cabochon to your pine needles. Such beautiful work.

  2. Bonjour. J'habite en France et je souhaiterais savoir si vous donnez des cours en ligne ? Je suis très intéressée... Cordialement, Véronique
