This was recorded a couple weeks prior to our elections but Katie was being a secret psychic and gave us all a nice pep talk when The Gals realized this episode would be going up this week. It’s a short talk, but I think we need all need it this week. WTF is raffia?!?!? We have the answers here… Loni and Katie discuss the what, where, and how of this versatile fiber and then give you some cool ideas on how to use it and incorporate it into your mixed media projects.
Listen to this episode here.
Check out the crazy awesome Pintrest board for this episode here.
Wise Geek has a cool and informative article on raffia that you can read right here.
Here is the video that shows the growing and harvesting of raffia (although none of this is in English, it is still very interesting to watch).
Here is the video about dying raffia we mentioned.
And lastly, here is the video explaining how to crochet with raffia!
