The craft of basketry is one of humankinds most important and diverse technologies, creating homes, boats, animal traps, armour, tools, cages, hats, chariots, weirs, beehives, shelters and furniture, as well as all manner of containers. Basket weaving makes use of fast-growing biodegradable materials -- branches, twigs or shoots -- that requires the forest to be cultivated rather than cleared. Basketry allows almost anyone, with little or no money and few tools, to create a large variety of useful goods in a way that is one hundred percent sustainable.
Virtually all human cultures have made baskets, and have apparently done so since we co-existed with ground sloths and sabre-toothed cats; for tens of thousands of years humans may have slept in basket-frame huts, kept predators out with basket fences, and caught fish in basket traps gathered while paddling along a river in a basket-frame boat. They might have carried their babies in basket papooses and gone to their graves in basket coffins.
Some of the interesting subjects covered in this collection are: Raffia basketry, Designs, Diagrams, Willow basketry, Art, Woven Cane, Indian/Aborigines basketry, Rattan furniture, Tools and materials, Techniques, Wrapped weaving, Plaiting, Crude coiling, Closed coiling, Technical terms, Methods of weaving, Boarders and handles, Willows their growth/harvesting/preparation and much much more!!
