ClickScholar Renee recommended this web presentation from the state of South Carolina, that explores how people are inspired by nature to shape, twist, carve, and weave materials collected from the landscape into works of art.
Description:Interviews with natural artists from various geographical zones of South Carolina are included on the site along with samples of their work.

The website provides free virtual workshops with step-by-step instructions and illustrations on how to make artwork using natural materials such as clay, pine needles, branches, vines, acorns, nuts, flowers, leaves, rocks, shells, and more.
When you get to the site you'll see a menu of art projects that include:

Coiled Clay Pottery
Dyes and Dyeing
Paper Making
Kudzu Basket Weaving
Pine Needle Baskets
Weaving
Bentwood Trellis Making
Dioramas

Click on any one to access a very clear presentation with instructions on how to create that object.
The site also offers "Resources"that include free lesson plans and activities for grades K-12 that encourage the use of natural arts in education.

Enjoy!
