A Basketmaker's Odyssey
Over, Under, Around & ThroughPaperback - 2006
Novices as well as advanced basketmakers will be amazed by the variety of materials and techniques examined in this fully illustrated guide. Step-by-step instructions for 24 projects, eight of which are specifically designed for beginning weavers, are offered within the special lay-flat binding and describe the entire project--from weaving the base and upsetting the sides to applying a handle and finishing with a rim. Patterns are supplied for unique creations such as an Abenaki-style knitting basket, a fabric melon basket, a natural-vine wall basket, and a braided, twill tote. A special photo insert contains images of baskets from all over the world, making this a beautiful book to both use and display.
