Baskets From Found Materials Week 6 – Rush and Rope

This week I made a basket using rope made out of rushes and some bits of synthetic rope I found when clearing out my loft. The rushes I used are soft (or field rush) which grows on wet bits of land.

This was made into rope and then I used a tying technique with the orange bits of rope to make a small basket.
