Shelter taking form

The shelter is taking form, constructing on the allotment is a great feeling, the space changes again and more interest is developed. The other allotment holders seem to be more and more interested, if somewhat bemused by what I do. Their comments are encouraging, when I make 'real' baskets to learn the skills they seem to be able to relate more to the unusual forms.

Making a prototype always takes so much longer, if I ever have the chance to make another it will be so much quicker. I have worked out how to make the elements and be able to transport them, setting the base and top ring in advance.
