Willow Basketry For The Very Beginner

Willow basketry does not need to be difficult. This book teaches simple willow techniques while helping users create useful baskets. Directions include line drawings. Eighteen simple, useful willow basketry "recipes" come with photos of each basket. This book is spiced with humor and personal learning experiences. -------------------------------------------------- This manual covers how to make willow baskets and is used by Joanna in her classes: Willow Weekend, the third weekend in February; Midwest Natural Basketmaking Seminar, the last full weekend in April; Association of Michigan Basketmaking Convention, in October; and at other locations across America. Joanna creates both traditional and not-so traditional willow baskets. Many are in private collections throughout the United States and abroad. She has travelled and studied in England and Germany. Of special note is how to make a willow basket with a removable bottom rim, a noteworthy feature of some of the traditional Amana baskets. Spiral bound. 7 3/4 x 9 3/4 inches. 63 pages.
