Natural materials found in the woods and fields are used to create baskets within the pages of this book. The chapters explain gathering and preparing both round and flat natural materials including leaves, roots, reeds, grasses, vines, shoots, willow, bark and splints. A wide variety of weaving techniques are clearly drawn for comparisons and many examples and instructions for borders, lids, handles and miniatures are presented. Seventy-five pictures and drawings show details, progressive instructions, and finished examples. Novices, naturalists and expert weavers alike can use Earth Basketry because its information is timeless and its presentation is clear.
