Weave a basket in two days? No problem. Retailer and artisan Crawford shares 30 years' worth of experience, and all 18 projects have been designed to be completed in a weekend (the series is the Weekend Crafter). The introduction to basics seems underdeveloped for beginners, but that disadvantage is overcome in the projects themselves. There are no shortcuts on information here; page after page is devoted to photographic instructions for both general techniques and steps in completing each particular basket. Baskets are grouped according to technique, whether employing colored reeds or round-base patterns. Choose from elementary designs--a basic or muffin basket--or those more complicated, such as a cachepot or a Shaker-inspired cat's-head bowl.
