Through the materials and tools used, basket weaving is an art which is close to nature. As many other crafts and traditions this art is under threat by our modern lifestyles, but manages to survive thanks to the teachings of a few devoted individuals. This work is aimed at beginners who want to launch themselves into the world of basket weaving and those who wish to improve their skills. La Vannerie, techniques et réalisations (Basket weaving, techniques and creations) introduces a range of the most frequently used materials and permits the reader to understand the advantages and disadvantages of each. The use of each of the weaver’s tools is described as are the basic techniques, with numerous colour pictures to illustrate each step. The third part of the book is devoted to projects and the techniques required for each. The projects, materials and techniques gradually become more difficult as they are completed. Highly illustrated, this book is a step by step guide to weaving and becoming a weaver.
