Eat & Weave

the Weeds

Poor Man's WIllow Basket

You'll weave a basket using willow technique, and invasive plants. Willow isn't so common in the south east, but I found a perfect alternative: Silverthorn. It has comparable strength, pliability and beauty, and It's a category II invasive in Florida!  With the classic skills from this workshop, you can make more baskets from willow, honeysuckle, english ivy, and many other plants.
