starting point for getting into basketry!
The book starts with the essentials surrounding
willow crafts, which tools you need, various
sources of willow and how to prepare the willow
for use. The projects themselves are presented
from easy to a bit more advanced. All of the
projects are gorgeously decorative; my personal
favourite being the dragonfly.
All the photo tutorials are very clear. Compared
to a number of other basketry books, the author
doesn't omit small steps under the assumption
that it's self explanatory. This makes sure you
can get your project right the first time and
don't have to experiment for yourself to
discover what the book really was talking about.
Even if you're already deep into willow crafts,
the crafts here are very inspiring and can give
you plenty of ideas for gifts and projects for
This small book comes highly recommended in
every way! Happy weaving!"
