Many books have been published on the art of weaving baskets, but this is one of a few to deal specifically with vines that are used. The author outlines methods for gathering vines and describes how one prepares the material for weaving. Succeeding chapters give detailed instructions along with photographs for identifying specific vines. Included are vine-growing locations and the best gathering times.Individual chapters cover the grapevine, honey-suckle, kudzu, willow, and wisteria. A chapter on miscellaneous vines includes bittersweet, berry and ivy. Another chapter describes use of other natural materials such as bark, cattails, and pine needles. A chapter devoted to the actual weaving is complete with photographs, showing different steps in the process of making a simple round basket as well as the melon-shaped basket and variations.This book combines step-by-step instructions with more than 130 photographs to give both novice and experienced basket weaver a complete, concise handbook.Beryl Omega Lumpkin is the author of 'From Vines to Vessels: A Vine Gatherer's Handbook--Identification, Gathering, Preparation', published 1987 under ISBN 9780932807250 and ISBN 0932807259.
