The wooden mould is necessary in basketry – you need it to give shape and form to your basket. If the material you are using is soft, the mould will help you achieve the perfect shape.
You will like their sturdy structure – they will endure all hammer taps as well as dampness. They are handmade in a local artisan’s workshop.
The shapes to choose from:
* Trapezium wooden mould – to make a cattail bag.
* Round wooden mould (cylinder) – for weaving with cattail (bulrush), spruce roots, and other materials.
