Coiled Pine Needle Basketry Workshop

SUPPORT
Agate Basket by G. Terlisner

Local weaver and basket maker Gary Terlisner will present a workshop on pine needle coiled baskets from 9:00 am. – 4:00 p.m. on April 22, 2022 in the Weeks Room at Grace St. Paul’s Episcopal Church on East Adams in Tucson.

Registration is open to both members and non-members of the Tucson Handweavers & Spinners Guild (THSG). Fee for members is $70 and for non-members $100 and is open to beginning basket weavers and up.

Participants will wrap 9 needles with waxed linen (their choice of color) for 2.5 inches. Then the coiled needles will be bent to form a round or oblong circle to start coiling the rest of their creation. If they would like to start the basket with an agate slice that is glued to a piece of vinyl I will furnish it. Since the agate slices are different colors, I suggest they use black waxed linen.

Gary Terlisner has been making baskets for about 24 years. He started with reed as he thought that was the only way to make baskets. Later, he was introduced to other types such as birch bark, painted paper, gourds and pine needle baskets. Pine needle baskets have become his passion as it is free-form, and he can let his imagination go wild.

To register for the workshop, go to www.thsg.org, click on “workshops” and scroll down to Pine Needle Basketry. You can register on-line, send an email to [email protected] or by snail mail to Tucson Handweavers and Spinners Guild, PO Box 64355, Tucson AZ 85728. See the THSG website for the cancellation policy.
