In almost every country in the world- there is a tradition of basketmaking- using plants that are indigenous to that particular area. But today- the plastic bag and cardboard box have replaced the baskets role of years gone by. However- there is something quite irresistible about the smell and the tactile appeal of a country hedgerow basket which is not only home-made but is sometimes even home-grown. This book aims to revive interest in the traditinal and useful craft of basketmaking.Susie Vaughan offers a fascinating- step-by-step description of how to make a delightful selection of strong- natural-looking and colourful baskets- mostly using materials which have been gathered from hedgerows- woods and gardens.Firstly- she covers the few tools required- then goes on to give a detailed- illustrated description of materials which can either be gathered from the annual prunings of a wide selection of bushes- or those which are farmed and can be bought from specialist suppliers. Her detailed step-by-step description of making a basket is accompanied by numerous diagrams and full-colour photographs to help explain the finer points of detail. She then explores variations in design- both of the shape of the basket and the alternative weaving patterns that can be employed to make the finished work that much more special.Finally- a superb gallery of photographs of finished baskets is included to provide you with ideas and motivation to go on to more adventurous projects....
