Overview

This classic text in basket-making, now in paperback, shows how to transform fragrant pine needles into stunning coiled baskets and other decorative items. It’s surprisingly easy, with all 40 projects based on wrapping needles around a center. From this simple technique, however, crafters can create limitless variety through the way they shape the coils, dye the needles, vary stitches, embellish with beads and seeds, and incorporate leather and wood. Special sections address gathering and storing materials, making lids and handles, and more.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Mallow is an excellent teacher with a gift for keeping the subject entertaining and easy to follow.”—Small Press

Library Journal
Pine needles have become raw materials for baskets because they were a widely available, renewable resource. Mallow (Pine Needle and Nut Crafting, Glover, 1984) is a pine needle basketry artist and teacher. Here she covers materials, tools, basic techniques, and projects. Instead of step-by-step instructions, the projects refer the crafter to the general techniques pages at the beginning of the book. Novices are advised to make the practice basket project, which has detailed instructions, before attempting a more advanced basket. This book may be more suitable for use with classes than as a guide for beginners.
