Basket Weaving for Beginners

The craft of basket weaving has a long history in the world of man. Using grasses, canes and palms to make baskets has been a tradition with many people across the globe. Baskets are useful for carrying dry goods such as seeds, cloth and other light items. Berries gathered from bushes have been taken back to the tribe’s camp for consumption since the Stone Age. Modern women have often used them to make gift baskets for friends and family. Weaving these useful items became a joke during the last century as they were replaced by plastic bowls and baskets. Before this skill had a chance to be lost, basket weaving again became an important craft practiced across the globe.
