Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

""From the complex to the simple, the author seeks ways to make twill basketry interesting and possible."--Arts & Activities

Twill baskets go back to the Native Americans, where each tribe and region had its own variations--and from these timeless techniques and patterns come the inspiration for brilliant geometric, diamond, block, and linear twill baskets, each more beautiful than the last. Through lavish illustrations, the entire process of weaving and plaiting unfolds, with guidance on reading and rendering a draft, the effects of color, and even "faking it" when nothing else will work. Make linear and undulating twills, double weave, and create fun shapes. Gentle suggestions on design potential will encourage your originality. From juxtaposed squares to bull noses, the possibilities are endless.
