Lyn Syler is a basket making expert who taught this craft to students over the years. That's how she met Carolyn Kemp who was one of her first students in 1981. The two of them have teamed up to produce a series of 'how-to' booklets on basket making, as well as two major works on the subject: "The Basket Book" and "Handmade Baskets". Now they have collaborated with the publishing of their newest title showcasing twenty-four terrific basket making patterns, "A Basketmaker's Odyssey: over, Under, Around & Through" where Lyn's superbly informative and 'reader friendly' text is wonderfully enhanced with Carolyn Kemp's photographic and drawn illustrations. These beautiful basket patterns with the 'user friendly' step-by-step instructions range from 'Easy Beginner' projects to baskets that will challenging the more advanced and experienced basket maker. From an Abenaki Style Knitting Basket, to Emily's Lit'l Pot Belly Purse, to a Natural Vine Wall Basket, to Woven Watercolors, "A Basket Maker's Odyssey" is the perfect addition to the dedicated basketmaker's reference shelf, and any community library's Homemade Crafts collection.
Love, love, love this book. Ordered it for the "Amish Tray" pattern especially. It's great that the book has colored pages.Makes the baskets show up and thus, makes for easier weaving. Besides, Lyn Syler is very well known in North Carolinabasketweaving circles. Book was expensive but worth it.
I loved the book with its many new patterns and techniques. Readers should be aware that there are some errors which were corrected by an insert in my book or you can go to the author's website.
Another inspiring collection from Lyn Siler...great patterns, great instructions and a great photo gallery of some of her basket collection. Easy for beginners, appreciated by more advanced weavers.
A wonderful book! Spiral binding such a good idea, wonderful patterns with dynamite instructions and graphics. Would highly recommend. Of course shipping is amazing....
Wonderful reference book and great instructions. The variety of baskets gives you many choices and materials to choose from. Glad to have it.
