Dust jacket notes: "Basketry is a craft which is almost as old as the human race itself, and it can still be practiced today using little more than hands and the fibres from plants grown and gathered for oneself. This is the first book to look at world-wide techniques from an Australian perspective, and represents the accumulated teaching and learning experience of a group of basketmakers living in South Australia. It gives very clear and comprehensive descriptions of the basic techniques used in fibre basketry, shows how to choose and prepare the fibres from easily-grown plants and how to make a variety of different articles. The book is generously illustrated with line drawings and photographs. The baskets shown were made by many different people, some quite new to the craft, others with years of experience. The book provides a thorough, practical introduction for those who have never tried the craft, a refresher course and irresistible stimulation for those who already know something about it, together with many ideas for future directions."
