A month ago, we gathered reeds from the roadside, beside an old church outside of Winnipeg.
They were hung to dry in our basement, and now are ready for whatever we decide to use them for...

To demonstrate, I soaked a handful and make this tiny basket.
I'm not too sure what I am going to use it for, other than a demo.
It is pretty sturdy by my standards, yet not something I would trust my children with unless I didn't mind "accidents".
It is made solely of the reeds, no glue, tape, string, etc.

 So that was the first handful, but there are several more ready to be used.  I am now just waiting on the inspiration of what to do next.
