Basket Weaving

Presenter: Mervi Salo

Mervi Salo Basket Weaving

Mervi Salo will be teaching how to use bundles of pine needles and sinew to create one-of-a-kind lasting baskets, coasters or mats. Many of the techniques can be applied to other materials such as sweet grass and bull rushes. Creations can be enhanced with different stitches, adding beads or other materials (e.g., black walnut slices).
