Very thin book (almost a pamphlet) on reed/rafia type weaving, which assumes access to pre prepared materials. One or two patterns, but not what I was looking for. I was hoping for some traditional, rural, robust wicker baskets in the English style.
Probably excellent if it's what you are looking for!

As another reviewer writes, this is not quite as I expected, but perhaps I should have read the specs first. It is not a book, but a booklet, running to 31 pages, with some basic instructions and 2 basket projects to make. It is an American publication and this is an important point to note since it deals with baskets made from reeds, a material not used in the UK, but you can substitute it for flat, oval and round cane. It has no list of suppliers and in my researches you can find cane, but not so easily found are the accessories such as pre-formed handles and ribs. Still, there are some good instructions on technique, which is always worthwhile. Nevertheless, in the UK, while cane is used, the principle material used ius willow and the beginner might do well to look for a book on basket weaving that concentrates on the use of this material. Overall, this book is very cheap, easily read and with good instructions on weaving technique, so you won't waste money buying it, but other books from UK writers and publishers may be more useful in the first instance.

Good directions and illustrations, having seen the author in action, had to buy this and have a go. My attempt was "interesting" but enjoyed it.

Handy to keep in your workbasket
this booklet has quite a lot of info, on making and creating different baskets
You will need to have done some basketry before though.

Not sure its for beginers like me. Because the materials are to be couloured before starting. However, the instructions are clear with useful diagrams to explain.
2 projects from start to finish with useful tips.
