Grapevine craft ideas

Baker City, OR(Zone 5b)

I grow a few grapes and haven't trimmed back last year's growth. What should I make? Anybody use them for baskets?

Hey ya'll...I make baskets from grape vines. Now is the time to make them while the sap is in the roots, not in the vine. Also, right now they are very pliable and you do not need to soak them like so many people feel the need to do to make them more limber. You'd be surprised what you can make with what is called a "loose weave" basket. I say go for it!

Got some directions for us? :) I would like to use these as baskets to sell, by themselves as well as a basket of houseplants to sell. I've never made a basket before, so this is new to me. Directions and tips are sooooo welcome!!
