Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Create 20 simple, modern basketry projects for use inside and outside the home.

Create twenty basketweaving projects from interior decorations to garden accessories, in shapes both classic and unusual (such as egg shapes and napkin rings).

Author Sylvie Begot uses coloured rattan to update what is a traditional craft, and uses simple techniques which are extensively explained through clear step by step photographs and instructions.

Anyone can create one of these basketry projects - no special skills are required, and the baskets can be made at home.
