2D Final Weave
22 x 20cm weave pattern (click on image for enlarged picture)
Tried other methods of weaving, hexagonal pattern, but found the rattan to be too thick.
Threading the rattan through the vertical rattan, alternating between the top and bottom rattans.
Tools used; scissors and ruler. Measured the rattan and cut them into even pieces before proceeding with weaving.
3D final weAVE

The entire 3D form had been built based on a frame of 6 x 6 strands. Placed to form a rectangle, we then started weaving from the middle out, using the mat pattern.
While we had initially attempted the hexagonal pattern, the rattan had been far too thick and the pattern thus did not show through since it could not form clean tight triangles.
The base of the 3D structure was completed to become about a 27 x 20 cm piece. The sides were continued by using long pieces to weave circles around the 24 standing strands.
Initially, it had been extremely difficult to weave. However, after soaking the rattan in water, it became softer and thus was easier to weave.

– Nice job on the weaving with good workmanship.
– the top-half of the basket using a different material is a nice contrast and relieve to the overall form.
