Basket weaving workshop

 Ewes had a workshop on basket weaving. Brenda was teaching us.
 We lined up our pre-soaked cane to form the base.
 Then measured to have the cross over in the centre.

 After a bit of work we soaked the cane again to make it pliable.

 I admired Brenda's fingers deftly adjusting my weaving to get it in a better position.
Weaving the cane was a delicate move to get it gently around the uprights with out breaking them and to get the weavers snug next to the previous row. Brendas fingers did this in an easy sure way but mine were all thumbs! Still with her help I and the others have a pleasing result.
