The final result was a neat little basket which would be perfect for collecting eggs in (if only I had a couple of chickens in my garden!).
Here are my three finished masterpieces (not too bad for a first try, if a bit rusic).
I really enjoyed the weekend - all the materials we needed were provided, and we had help at every stage. It would be fun to do more but there's a lot of advance preparation (the hoops were dried for weeks beforehand, and the other weaving materials had to be soaked to ensure they were flexible). I might have to scavenge in the hedgerows for materials to practice with.
