Adult Pine Needle Basket Workshop

Date(s): 7/22/2014

both located in the Beaufort Historical Association Welcome Center at 130 Turner Street
Adult Pine Needle Basket Workshop

As part of the Beaufort Historical Association’s Living History series, Sandi Malone will conduct two workshops on the centuries-old folk art of pine needle basket making.

A children’s workshop will be held on Tuesday, July 22nd from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and an adult workshop will follow on Friday, August 22nd from 10 a.m.-2 p.m, both located in the Beaufort Historical Association Welcome Center at 130 Turner Street.

The art of pine needle basketry can be traced back to east coast Native American tribes, who coiled and stitched pine needles to create feed baskets and vessels to transport water. The practice achieved decorative art status during the Civil War when women began using pine needles to make hats. Today, pine needle basket makers still use the original coiling and stitching technique as the Native Americans.
Pine needle baskets are made by removing the sheath that holds the pine needles together, soaking the needles, stitching, and coiling them. Artists can make a number of different designs using different types of needles and varying the stitches.

Participants will learn all aspects of the craft, from how to collect the necessary materials to actually making a pine needle basket of their own. This popular workshop tends to fill quickly and pre-registration is required. The children’s workshop on July 22nd is limited to 8 participants and the materials fee of $25 must be paid at the time of registration.

The adult workshop on August 22nd is limited to 10 participants and the materials fee of $40 must be paid at the time of registration.

Beaufort Historical Association’s Welcome Center, located at 130 Turner Street


Summer History Day Camp: Living History Program for Students

The Beaufort Historical Association will host a three-day Summer History Day Camp for children ages 8-11 years old. There will be two sessions for students to choose from, one offered in late July and the other in early August. Camp runs from 9 a.m. to noon each day and the participants will meet at the Beaufort Historical Association’s Welcome Center, located at 130 Turner Street. Throughout the week, students will have the opportunity to tour and learn about each of the buildings and the gardens on the Beaufort Historic Site.
Campers will participate in colonial activities to learn about life in early America. These activities will awaken their awareness of the difficulties facing our ancestors, make them more appreciative of present day life, and encourage them to work harder towards a more productive future. Students will learn about colonial money, clothing, and cooking while touring the historic buildings, including the popular Jail and Apothecary. They will also be invited to participate in hands-on activities that range from rope making and knot tying to gardening, butter churning, and open hearth cooking. The camp will incorporate snacks and recreation time, where campers will have a chance to dress up in vintage costumes and try colonial games. At the end of the week, campers can use coins they have earned during the workshops to barter with each other for crafts they have made.
Cheryl Munyan, along with other dedicated Beaufort Historical Association volunteers and staff, will share their knowledge and unique skills in the Living History day camp.

Session 1 runs from July 29th-31st, and session 2 runs from August 5th-7th, with reservations required. There is a limit of 12 children per session and a materials fee of $40, to be paid at the time of reservation. Scholarships are available.
