Asymmetrical Cedar and Cane : Using wire and dyed binder cane over cedar bark spokes, this asymmetrical basket will be twined using 2 X techniques. Initially the spokes will be wide, and then cut narrower to achieve a twisted shape.
Intermediate to advanced weavers can manipulate the shape with this method.
Beginners will learn the nuance of twining with X’s on a symmetrical shape.

Coiling horsehair? Painstaking doesn’t even begin to describe your work. Patience is a trait I seem to have been born with, and I actually enjoy (and sought out) work that would slow down my approach to production.
