Peruvian Finger Weaving and Basketry

 Angelica and our friend Tracy Holliday, were quite the weavers at the primitive skills camp.  Here is Angelica hard at work on her Peruvian Finger Weaving project, an art with ancient origins.

Basketry was another primitive skill that required concentration and finger dexterity to complete the project.  Shown here, Tracy is working with broomsedge to craft a tightly woven basket.

I have not heard of Peruvian finger weaving but I'll bet I'd like to give it a try! Fun!

Love basket making and haven't done it for a long time. Not sure my fingers would allow it any longer. How wonderful to see Angelica intrigued by weaving.
