Format: Paperback
This book explains the techniques of basketry, starting with round reed and twining, finishing with flat reed and plaiting. It explains them more in a historical perspective than in a how-to manner, though the illustrations of how to twine are very good and easy to comprehend. The title of the book implies a kind of step-by-step or how-to book, but this isn't a how-to book, it's a beautiful look at and explanation of basket weaving, and it includes many woven forms that are purely decorative rather than functional. This is for advanced weavers -- though it's fun to look at even if you're a beginning weaver, or somebody simply interested in baskets.

If basketry puts you off, be careful; Virgiina Havey's insight, appreciation, and knowledge might convert you into becoming a connoisseur. If you've never before woven fiber structrures, the detailed instructions, clear diagrams, and many photographs can launch you into new and enjoyable paths. Over 400 photographed examples and explicit line drawings enable even the beginner to master the steps easily.
