"The Complete Book of Baskets and Basketry" is a comprehensive guide to this satisfying craft. Ranging from the history of baskets to their care in museums, it explores the various regional and national styles and materials, and provides detailed advice and instruction on design, materials, techniques and care and repair. Dorothy Wright is an expert craftswoman and she gives us the benefit of her expertise. She provides instructions for a number of items made from materials ranging from willow and cane to straw and grasses, using methods such as stake-and-strand, coiling, plaiting and twining. With a basketmaker's vocabulary and a bibliography for those who want to read further, this is a book to appeal to the professional as well as the amateur basketmaker. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
