          Thanks Jane & Joan. I love making baskets and it’s been too long, so I better buy a kit quick.

            Awesome. Haven’t done basket weaving in years. I have a Wisteria Vine that I prune tons off of a couple of times a year…. can I dry that and use it? Any tips?

                Hi Jean, I’ve always wanted to try to weave with wisteria vine, haven’t found someone who has one 😉 I’m pretty certain you can as I have looked it up before online. If you weave with it, do post photos, it would be great to see!

                    A little late to the party, but I used a large wisteria vine as the handle and rim for an egg-basket style basket a good 35 years ago. 28 years ago my toddler thought it was great to sit in and eventually the handle broke. I may go gather some vines this spring and make another one. I miss weaving baskets. But please don’t tell my husband I’m taking up yet another hobby.

                  Fun! Haven’t gotten the basket weaving supplies out in too long. Going to get them out, dye up some reed, and get some prezzies made! Thanks!

                    I just finished my first one in the kit. I think I am hooked! I loved doing it and they really are fun to make! Thanks, Jane and Joan!

                        Loved this. I haven’t made baskets in years. Very inspiring, I’m going to try and make a garlic basket. Merry Christmas to you all.

                          Something I have always wanted to do. Thank you for the clear explanation. It is too late for this Christmas, but I have a year ahead of me! Happy Christmas for this year!

                            I just finally watched this. Besides a weaver I do sculptural pine needle basket weaving. I never had the desire to make a basket of this style. I do now! That was excellent. Thank you for including it. It’s nice to have these guild videos during our covid 19 hibernation days. So many projects I might actually get to and now you’ve added one for me. Thanks!

                              I have always been interested in basket weaving and I love this video! I have grapevine growing in our garden and I love plaiting Gymea lilly leaves. Maybe I can use this video and use both my grapevine and some leaves such as Gymea lilly leaves. I’d have to have an appropriate material for the twine. Gives me lots to consider and am eager to try!

                                Please send us progress reports!  I’d love to see how your plan works out, Dayamitra.

                                  Will do. During this period of hibernation due to the virus (I am lucky enough to be healthy!) I may get the chance to experiment very soon.
