RE: [SCAbasketry] Digest Number 170
- Previously I wrote
I have some vine type material that has dried. If I want to reconstitute it
for weaving I believe I need to soak it. My question is how long do you
need to soak very dry stuff and is it always possible to get it pliable
enough to weave?
replied: The processing of vines for weaving depends on what kind of vine it
is. I suggest you identify the vines if you can,
The vine is woody, wisteria to be exact. I appreciate the information in
your reply and will use it as time permits. I also have morning glory
growing and some other vines in the neighborhood that need some trimming
including honeysuckle so I probably have a lot of material to work with here
in my suburban neighborhood. Cool.
