Coiling is the basketry method where one material is wrapped around another in a spiral. The wrapping material is soft and pliable and used for weaving together the rows. The inner material can be a bit sturdier or can be the same material used for wrapping.

Basketry is one of the traditional crafts taught in a Waldorf high school.
