Sarah creates these baskets using materials from the Earth close to her.

Indigenous and endangered long leaf pine needles are provided in abundance from an Elder Tree on her land. The needles range in length from 14" to 22".  

The basket centers range from cedar, mimosa, and holly tree slices (or cookies, as they are called), to smooth round stone centers, shells, walnut slices, and ceramics. All are responsibly sourced and chosen for their organic beauty.

View the selections below, read their stories, and see how the beauty of the pine needle basket resonates in your own life. 

Two-day workshops are available and are held in the comfort of your home or mine.  The cost is $95/person with all materials provided and the guarantee that you will complete one small basket that your own hands have made... with a little help from a friend.
