Basketry Project | Ms. Barber’s Class

Basketry Project | Ms. Barber’s Class

Ms. Barber’s 4/5 Grade class went on a beautiful morning hike at Thomas Creek to gather bundles of dry Jeffery Pine needles for a pine needle basketry project they will start in handwork with Ms. Burkett. They could still use more bundles so if you are out hiking with your child in the next couple of weeks, please collect some bundles of Jeffery Pine needles and drop them off in Ms. Barber’s classroom.

What to bring

  • Needles: 5’’ to 10’’ in bundles of 3
  • Cones: 5’’to 8’’ with prickles curve in
  • Bark that smells like butterscotch or vanilla
