The ancient art of basketry

Untitled Karey Dodge | North Tahoe Arts Center

Local artist Karey Dodge shares her passion for the ancient art of basketry in a Pine Needle Basket Weaving workshop on Feb. 21 at North Tahoe Arts. Students will learn simple stitches and techniques to create a basket that they will then embellish with gemstones, feathers and beads. Baskets will be finished and ready to take home at the end of the day.

No experience is necessary, and materials are included in the price; the workshop from noon to 4 p.m. is $55 for NTA members and $65 for nonmenbers. Teens are welcome to attend. |
