Re: Hi from Trimaris
- I was actually thinking about basketry, something that I have always wanted to try, but the idea of a quiver is a great one, I actually started one 2 years ago as part of a household class and still need to complete it.
Thanks for your idea, so far my first project will be a smimple one, a roman bulla.
I hope to find someone to teach me basketry, I have yet to really see any classes at event here in and around darkwater.
I will keep on the look out for the shells, that would be an awesome project too! If I find any I will be sure to post about it.
