This fully illustrated guide gives readers step-by-step instructions for harvesting, curing, splitting, sizing, and weaving plant materials into an Ipai (Northern Diegueño) style coiled basket. Novices and experienced basket makers alike can learn from Farmer's methods, which he explains in a voice that is equally instructive and wisecracking. Close-up photographs demonstrate key techniques and processes in this lively, intimate manual to a traditional California Indian art.

Justin Farmer, an Ipai basket weaver, collector, scholar, and cultural activist, has long been a fountain of knowledge and a seemingly inexhaustible reservoir of humor and (sometimes) good jokes. Justin is a cherished friend, and Heyday is pleased that he has allowed us to handle the distribution of three of his books.
