I started this sample cane seating weave in March with my basketry group, The Basketry Collective.
Anita Vozik led half the group through rush seating and the other half through this spiderweb weave. It has seven layers which build up quite easily. The hardest part is threading the cane through as the holes become smaller and smaller with increasing layers. Layers six and seven require a certain degree of patience!
Many thanks to Anita for her brilliant tuition and all the preparatory work she did for the group. You can see Anita’s upholstery and seating skills on Instagram @anita_vozik
