Weaving natural fibres



Deb showed me her beautiful winter weaving projects when I was in Adelaide recently. These photos are from Deb's blog.....

But Deb also makes wonderful structures in the garden such as these..... all just from materials she grows.


I cannot wait to try some of this in my garden. I have lots of suitable plants and trees.... but even with a friend like Deb to give me some guidance, I do not think I will ever be as skilful as her!




Here are some other ideas for weaving fences in Europe, mostly as a means of stabilising soil.....

I tried weaving baskets from willow once. We made about half a dozen, but they weren't nearly as good as any of this. I want a friend like Deb who can show me... :(
