A weaver’s guidebook for indoor and outdoor objects, written by the professional weaver Marianne Mortensen. The first part of this guide is devoted to the cultivation of willow, the different varieties for different tasks and the tools required. Step by step descriptions of the basic principles, such as making a basket base, raising the sides, the top rims and the numerous ways of combining them together. All this is illustrations by drawings and photographs of the baskets, pot holders, chairs, garden utensils, bird cages and Christmas decorations. The detailed instructions make basket weaving available to beginners and confirmed weavers.
