Create a basket using the long-needled Coulter pines which grow in the Santa Lucia Mountains of the Los Padres. With just raffia, a darning needle and pine needles, learn how to create a unique design as you experiment using four distinctive stitches. Students will complete a unique and fragrant vessel and have the skills and knowledge to continue exploring this art form. 


CAROLYN ZEITLER graduated in 1976 with a degree in ceramics and weaving. Three years later, she began what has become a lifelong pursuit of pine needle basketmaking. Her work is inspired by her interest in Japanese culture and design and her love of ceramics. She has exhibited and taught for 40 years and her work is featured in collections from Paraguay to Japan.
