This is like a dream come true, I had always been so much amazed by artwork & furniture made using Bamboo and kept wondering how this strong grass (yes, it is a grass) can be bend to make so many beautiful shapes.
Believe it or not, at the back of my house, there is a giant bamboo tree (can't help calling it a tree) on someone else's land, everyday I fascinate to cut some bamboo and made something out of it but I could not :(. Well the day come when I came across a bamboo artist here in India. She was weaving a bamboo basket, I asked her how do you bend it so easily without breaking it. There my friend the secret was revealed (Shhhhhsss... I will tell ya soon)
So I decided to get my hands dirty, I am nowhere near to being a bamboo expert but I guess I figured out my own ways to get it work.
This iBle has 9 steps, Step-8 is totally optional and Step-9 is my closing thoughts, so its just 7 steps :).
Interestingly, I found this shape of the lantern very unique :).
So lets bend some bamboo :)
