Scotchbroom basketry

Invasive Scotchbroom, what to do with it? I had some good success with coil basketry techniques. Drying needs to be carefully done, I worked with fresh materials, and if left in a stack, things will mould quickly, so recommend  drying on a rod horizontally so air can move around individual pieces. We used chopsticks as an awl to make space for the vine to stitch the works together, a pointy sticks works great, but is harder to find when dropped…

scotchbroom, blackberry, morning glory duke it out, which invasive will rule?
