Weave a Basket with Pine Needles from the Sierra Norte
Miércoles de Manualidades: Sarcina
Craft Wednesday: Basket Weaving with Pine Needles
Our host, Lucia, from the Sierra Norte is heading down the mountain to receive you in Tlayudona for this conveniently-located basket-weaving experience.
She will bring all of the materials you need to weave a small basket, earrings, or a coaster out of “sarcina”, or the pine needles that are used for weaving in the Sierra Norte.
Enjoy working in an intimate setting and learning this unique local craft, while creating the perfect (and easily-packable) souvenir to bring home and remember your stay in Oaxaca.
Your basket weaving experience includes:
- All materials necessary to create your art piece
- Local specialty coffee or ancestral mezcal
- A snack
- Spanish-to-English Translation (if necessary)
Minimum # of participants:
- If translation is required: 2
- If translation is not required: 1
If you and your group of 2 or more friends/family prefer to learn this art form in its natural setting in the Sierra Norte, check out our full-day Sierra Norte experience for groups of 3 or more here.
