This fabulous, gorgeously photographed introductory course will have even novices finishing a decorative basket the very first weekend. Basketry master BJ Crawford offers the fruits of her many years' experience, explaining how to add bases, shape baskets, substitute materials, embellish, and more. A wealth of knowledge on reeds covers everything from preparation to dyeing and finishing. From a simple handled market basket to a charming letter basket with twine embellishments, these projects are as beautiful as they are practical.and#160;
