In my ongoing quest to learn skills and hand crafts my intuition has pushed me towards the art of weaving. Given Australia’s abundance for native grasses and the fact my neighbours have masses of Lomandra growing as a great source, I decided to play around with some by muddling my way through a Weed Basket. (not sure if this little basket was intended to carry weeds or be made from weeds).
The end result is very personal, rustic and unique. I’ll see how it goes as a knife sheath? Or maybe a mobile phone holder??
The first of many baskets to come.
