5.0 out of 5 stars practical basketry techniques, 31 July 2012

This review is from: Practical Basketry Techniques (331/3) (Paperback)
Last February an amazing book was published. Having pre-ordered it, I could hardly wait for it to arrive and to be able to hold it, turn the pages and look at the beautiful pictures. My expectations were high and I was not disappointed .
Stella and Shane show the reader how to work with a variety of materials. Besides working with the traditional willow, rush and grasses, they also show you how to use less obvious materials, such as paper, plastic, textile fibers, etcetera, turning every-day basketry into contemporary art.
The techniques used are cordage, coiling, plaiting, twining, stake and strand, interlacing and combinations of these techniques, which results in some amazing pieces, and they are not afraid of using some colour.
This book provides lots of information on collecting the weaving materials and on how these materials are to be treated and used.
The simple entry-level projects described in this book, are accompanied by clear step-by-step pictures
Practical basketry techniques is not just another basketry book. The authors managed to make a innovative, inspiring document, which includes clear instructions for using general techniques. This book is not only useful for beginning basket makers, but also of great use and inspirational for the more experienced basket weavers. It gets your creative juices flowing and makes you want to get started straightaway. A great asset to the library for everyone who loves to make baskets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book. Just starting to make baskets., 4 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Practical Basketry Techniques (331/3) (Paperback)
As a beginner in basket making, this book is an inspiration.

Lots of hints and tips on materials and techniques. The materials cover the usual willow and rushes to grasses to paper and plastic. Lots of recycling opportunities.

Many techniques are covered to produce a great variety of basketry.

I made a couple of bramble baskets from foraged stems and they didn't take long to do.

I'm looking forward to trying many other forms.

I bought this blind having never seen it before which is unusual for me and I am thrilled with it. It is well written, with interesting projects using a range of materials. The photos are lovely and I am very glad I bought it.
