Beautifully photographed and created for the beginner, this fabulous introductory basketry course, with 18 enticing projects, will have you finishing a decorative basket the very first weekend. The author offers the fruits of her 30 years' experience: time-tested tips for adding bases, shaping baskets, substituting materials, adding embellishments and many more tricks. A wealth of knowledge on reeds covers everything from preparation to dyeing and finishing, and there's instruction on all the different basket-weaving structures. The projects teach a variety of techniques, each one building upon the last. Start with a small Basic Basket that uses 11 key procedures, and then move on to a charming Market Basket, which includes an attractive handle. Then try a Storage Basket, Hanging Letter Basket, Nantucket-inspired Spiral Twill Basket, or a Bathroom Catch-All. Plus: a beautiful gallery from an international selection of basket artists.
