So many interesting basketry designs can be made from plant leaves and bark you find in nature or purchase from suppliers. Projects are divided by the type of plant used: iris leaves, cattail leaves, willow stems, and bark. Learn where and how to harvest and prepare what you need, and the basic materials and weaving techniques. Then weave the 25 projects, ranging from traditional baskets to wall-hangings to a shoulder bag, pencil cup, Christmas decorations, and much more. The projects are both functional and modern in style and add a natural accent to your home.
