Hi, my name is Judit and I am the creator of WonderWeaver. I found the art of basketry 11 years ago just after my first child was born. As you can imagine, with a little one in the house, I needed a relaxing hobby to complete at home that I could pick up and put down; basketry was my answer.
My children have been the driving force in my life and after seeing my son put a woven basket on his head and call it a crown, I realised that the imagination of our littlest treasures was a clue to what they wanted. I started designing unique crowns and they have been a huge success for children's birthday parties or as presents, or simply a prop to let their imagination overflow. A crown and a friend is all you need for a wonderful game of princes and kings or princesses and queens.
Basket weaving is a joyful and relaxing activity for adults and children, and proven to have many educational benefits as well. It helps improve hand-eye coordination, concentration and creativity. So, as you can see working with natural materials and creating something from mothing, is not only beautiful but gets you to spend more quality time with your little ones too.
If you are just starting out or your little one wants to try out his hands at basketry, these DIY kits are perfect as a gift and will show you what you are capable of. On the top of it you will have a beautiful handmade item when you have finished. A gift that keeps on giving.
