Fibre Basketry - Homegrown and Handmade
This popular book contains a wealth of practical information for anyone wanting to develop their knowledge and skills in natural fibre basketry.
Contemporary basketry has evolved from one of the oldest crafts known to humanity.
Members of Basketry SA use traditional methods, including those of ethnic and indigenous cultures to create both practical baskets and sculptural forms.
