Learn the basics of pine needle basketry, an old craft with a long history. Join artist Brittney Hughes to learn the basic steps to making a coiled basket from longleaf pine needles.

Coiling is the technique of creating baskets and art from pine needles and was a part of pre-Columbian Native American crafts.
