Weaving Workshop

Emma Garrard/Sierra SunInstructor Audrey Frank weaves a basket during the class.

The first of two pine needle basket weaving classes took place outside the Gatekeepers Museum in Tahoe City Wednesday. The class was taught by Audrey Frank who has been weaving for more than 10 years. Students sat outside in the shade of pine trees as they made their first baskets.Its really easy, said Emily McNair of Tahoe City who attended the class with her mother because it sounded like fun.For me the best part is being outside, Denise Filakosky of Mill Valley said as she sat on a picnic table with six other women. And I love the camaraderie of the women.The next class will take place in August. For more information go to http://www.gatekeepersmuseum.org Emma Garrard, Sierra Sun
