Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Here expert naturalist John Rhyder shares his passion for bushcraft by showing us how to weave bark baskets. We see how best to select, cut and prepare the wood as well as the actual weaving techniques. John also reveals his interest in the various ancient cultures and communities who would have made maximum use of this versatile skill. http://www.woodcraftschool.co.uk An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv

I guess a person could go barking mad doing this, eh? 😉

Can you use sumac trees for basketweaving? They are a nuisance tree where I live and I need to know what I can use them for.

I'd like to see more political solidarity with indiginous, native and aboriginal movements hand in hand with "looking towards" and use of culture. Decolonisation of sorts. I don't know how much there is in British countryside organisations overall, pretty sure there's scope. Naming particular nations and if applicable where things have come down not directly from native groups where those settler groups got their borrowed traditions from, doing so as carefully as we were naming the geographical location here would be a good start.
But definitely otherwise soothingly delicious video from a materials point of view and neat and orderly process and smooth camera work, editing and sound.
