Part 2: Weaving Trip's with Martha Younkin / by Elizabeth Derstine

Here, I am showing multiple ways of splitting the bark to make it thinner in it's width and thickness. Dividing bark in half and getting two symmetrical knots was one of the most satisfying moments of working with natural fibers. 

This was me weaving Cedar for the first time. I will show photos to come of how the basket turned out and the challenges I had with learning new finishing (Rim) techniques.
