Paperback. 204 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 0.5in.How to Make Baskets. PREFACE: THE twisting and weaving of Natures materials, grasses, twigs, rushes and vines into useful and beautiful forms seems almost instinctive in man.

Today Indian tribes in South America weave baskets from their native palms, South African negroes use reeds and roots, while the Chinese and Japanese are wonderful workmen in this as in other arts and industries but basketry has come down to us more directly through the American Indian. Basketry today fills the need for a practical home industry for children so not only in school, club and settlement but on home piazzas in summer, young weavers are taking their first lessons. Though they are unlearned in woodcraft, and have not the magic of the Indian squaw This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
