Anyway it was still a fab talk as I am always fascinated by what people make. The 2 picture are of 2 different plaits, one with the head of corn still on and another is a 7 strand plait. Di anyone watch the series on the Victorian farm? in she plaited straw and made a hat. This is the same plait. More info here.
It was fascinating what can be made with straw and it is something I am sure I will come back too. I quite fancy making my own hat!
Of course I have called it corn but I have no idea what sort of cereal it is so I am sorry if I got it wrong.
