On top of Bishop and Clerk, Maria Island, Tasmania

I weave baskets
Out of telephone wire
On top of mountains
I call it extreme weaving

Hello and welcome to Weaving Wild. I'm Brigitte, a South African now living in Tasmania. I weave one-of-a-kind baskets out of discarded telephone wire and network cable. I call it "extreme weaving" because much of it is done during mountain-top rests whilst walking in the Tasmanian wilderness. To share the beauty of Tasmania (and other destinations) I take work-in-progress photographs of them 'on location'. This is where I share the story of their travels.

I welcome commissions, so if you'd like a custom design made especially for you or a lucky recipient, please get in touch.
