Pine Needle Basket Weaving Workshop

June 24, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Registration fee includes Hands-on Instruction, Book, and Basketry supplies (with enough to make up to three more baskets depending upon the size). It takes about 6-8 weeks to process pine needles for a workshop. Geraldine Zelinsky comes with a wealth of knowledge that she is willing to share with workshop attendees, from the history and plight of the Longleaf Pine (Pinus palustris), to prepping materials and finally to creating your very own basket.

 The registration fee is $180. Deadline to register (with payment) is Thursday, May 25.

Registration form and check payable to G. Zelinsky

MAIL to:

Geraldine Zelinsky

c/o Walter B Jacobs Memorial Nature Park

Caddo Parish Parks & Recreation

8012 Blanchard-Furr Rd

Shreveport LA 71107

(The reason for the early deadline allows Geraldine time to not only order all the supplies but she must go through a process of applying glycerin to the pine needles and allowing time to dry.)
