Dyed reed can be woven into colorful repetative patterns. Often the the patterns are woven into the sides of baskets or bottoms of low sided trays. I decided to weave a reed color study into a square pattern and insert the design into a frame for display.
I started the weaving just as I would to make a basket bottom, without the extra reed needed to weave sides.
After I achieved the desired size I folded
the reed back onto itself.
I covered the back of the weaving with a felt square before I placed
the weaving into a frame.
