Easter random weaving with grapevine
One of the lovely things about family gatherings is sharing our passions. Easter 2014 was a time to gather as a whole family with all my siblings and parents present. My sister is a great gardener, and I enjoy wandering around her garden and noticing the seasonal changes. The ornamental grape vine around her back patio is always in glorious colour in autumn. Together we pruned the long trailing branches and shared a random weaving day together. My sister made a lovely first random weave basket from the grapevine, complete with a handle. I made a couple of flat forms experimenting with density of weave.
