A find-woven is a creation that is intrinsically of a place. The one I present is made from fallen birch twigs, because that is what is found in that place. The form of this one is a fairly flat woven together piece, but a find-woven can take on any shape the material lends itself to. The rules are simple. Go to a place. Use what is already there (without disrupting said place). Leave it there.
