9781579906061: Basketry: The Shaker Tradition: History, Techniques, Projects

“Quite appropriate for a novice basketmaker as well as a history buff. The book is timeless, as are the baskets.”— Shuttle Spindle & Dyepot

Every one of these baskets transcends simple usefulness and becomes an object of beauty in its own right. Expert basketmaker and historian John McGuire carefully guides crafters through the process of making seven complete projects, from the recognizable Cat Head Basket to the practical Personal Carrier. The eye-opening manual offers easy-to-follow instructions, with all the basic tools and techniques covered; more than 300 close-up photos; and 24 pages of full-color examples. In addition, it presents an insightful look at the Shaker philosophy, religion, and industries that produced some of the most beautiful handiwork in America. The author lives in Geneva, NY.
