What can you do with a 4′ rubber strip?

Katherine and Alex, both master weavers took the challenge.

Katherine and Alex, both master weavers, took the challenge.

For many years we have carried these wonderful strips of rubber which we found in a market in Baguio, Philippines. There they are used for sling shots, here… holding on veneer for a banjo, exercise, gardening. In the Skagit Valley we have had the privilege to meet some amazing artisans – Alex and Katherine among them (see http://www.dunbargardens.com for Katherine’s willow baskets). We put the challenge to them. Here they are shown with the results.

Katherine said her’s was a bear, Alex said using jute made the rubber easier to handle. Anyone else up for the challenge come get some strips.
