Primitive Skill – Basket Weaving With Cattails


The primitive art of basket weaving is certainly not among the most important of skills to learn.  But there could be times in a survival situation when knowing how to construct a simple basket or other type of container could be useful.  Note: I am no expert in weaving…. as you will be able to tell from the finished product.  But with just a little practice anyone can get the hang of  it, as weaving is a fairly easy skill to understand and be able to use.  Even though this particular basket didn’t come out looking the best, it is functional and will do the job.  Take a look at this very basic, quick and to the point video on basket weaving using the commonly available Cattail leaves.
