An Illustrated Guide to 20th Century Basket Weaving
Author: Luther Weston Turner
Basket weaving is a long-practiced art form around the world, used in practical and decorative manners. Author Luther Weston Turner developed this illustrative manual to explain how to develop a variety of simple, melon shaped, and circular baskets, as well as mats. He begins with the basics to help familiarize new artisans. Turner does not work in a specific style, though he worked with various Native American tribes at the turn of the century and has borrowed extensively from the stylings he learned. This particular work was originally part of a 1905 series, but became so popular that they were collected and developed into this manual. While he published a small selection of articles on basketry in various journals, such as Manual Training Magazine, this is Turner's only known book.
Through a series of easy to follow step by step projects, this book will teach you the fundamental skills and techniques as used in many every-day baskets. Clear instructions and more than 280 photos and diagrams will guide you through every aspect. Projects include 'your first basket', a simple bowl; a log basket; a garden trug; a potato basket; and a foraging basket. This book is designed for the beginner. Everything you need to know is covered, including guidance on sourcing the willow either from a specialist grower, or the countryside. "Basketry is a rewarding craft. Being able to take some humble sticks and weave them together into a beautiful and functional item is extremely satisfying. Even after weaving hundreds of baskets, I still get a 'buzz' when finishing a new creation. The satisfaction doesn't stop there either, using your hand-made baskets for jobs such as picking berries or gathering produce from your garden, is a joyful thing." Jonathan Ridgeon Note: The full range of projects are those pictured on the cover.
