What would a basket look like made of strips of film? Or, telephone wire? The answer, as you’ll instantly see when you open these pages, is – absolutely gorgeous. In fact, anything you can cut into ribbons will work – plastics, gourds, rope, cardboard, polymer clay, even cereal boxes. Don’t worry if you haven’t taken a basketmaking course, because the four simplest traditional techniques (weaving, twining, plaiting, and coiling) are laid out for you. Get creative with 40 marvelously imaginative projects, all created by the best artists in the field. For an intriguing juxtaposition of materials, combine the smoothness of copper with the rough texture of sisal; as the wire ages, the basket’s look will change. Recycle old newspaper (particularly one with an attractive script, like Chinese) or giftwrap into a plaited basket; it’s one of the simplest and will give you immediate gratification. It’s an eye-opening look at an old craft!
