Christmas Weavings and What Knots...

Star made with basketry scraps.
Christmas Tree woven with scraps of raffia, sisal, jute and seagrass.

These natural ornaments are made with basketry scraps. I made them as a prototype for a class I'm giving in December.  Let me know what you think! Follow me on Pinterest for more basketry and craft ideas.

Basktry Classes and Easter Fun.

I haven't posted anything in a while (about a year)... I thought I'd post some pics of my latest project. I've been doing a lot more basketry recently. Since moving back from Egypt I've started working so I haven't had as much time for my crafts. With Summer on its way, however, I hope to remedy that.

I taught a basketry class at BOW right before Easter. I taught two sessions and I had some really great students. I will be teaching again around Halloween at the next BOW gathering. These classes always leave me feeling refreshed and inspired.

I was feeling inspired after teaching the class... so I decided to weave my kids Easter baskets. After we dyed our eggs I used the extra dye to color some reed and other fiber. I'm not sure how colorfast egg dye is. But I'm not sure how many more years my kids will be hunting Easter eggs either so hopefully it will stay colorful for a few more years.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Spring.  What inspires you this season?
