Woven baskets

Woven baskets are useful for a lot of things in the village. They can be used as a rubbish bin for food scraps, or they can be used for transporting food from one place to another. They are inexpensive and don’t damage the environment when they are thrown away.

One day Rebekah and I learnt how to weave a basket. It was pretty easy to do, although I would still need a bit of supervision and guidance if I were to make one again.

This is Rebekah and Joyce working on a basket:

This is the basket that I made:
