How to Use Dried Cattail to Make Indian Baskets

How to Use Dried Cattail to Make Indian Baskets | eHow

Pleaching or plashing was common in gardens from the late Middle Ages until the 18th century. This technique is a kind of weaving of the branches of deciduous trees or shrubs to form a living fence. Sometimes branches woven together grow together, a natural grafting known as inosculation. Sir Walter Scott brought the technique back to popularity in England when he described such a fence in The Fortunes of Nigel.

Wattle fence to keep my chickens out of the garden. A wattle fence can take on any shape, even curved. PS Notice how the top level is braided for strength.

Weaving with KUDZU vines! Well? We have MORE THAN enough of that here in Alabama!!! Lol Someone might actually PAY you to come "harvest" it!!! :) this seems to have a TON of prep work for these vines to be used. I would say this would be a more aggressive hobby project. Pinning for my "book" I'm printing of things to do :)
