The Village of Basketeers

May 2, 2005
Hardcover

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2–Elsa and Kip live atop a cliff in a small village where people make their living through basketry. When a strong wind comes along and then blows harder day after day, something must be done. The townsfolk weave baskets–one strong and then one large–to trap it, to no avail. Finally, the children decide to try a different approach; they create a tiny basket filled with down that captures the wind's fancy and encourages it to settle down to sleep. Sweetly told and illustrated in fruity ice-cream pastel colors, this fluffy tale of child heroes attempts to be a modern fairy tale. While the writing is competent, the narrative feels rushed and the ending falls short. Ceccoli's round-faced, folksy people live in a curved, windblown world full of light and fantasy colors that...

·
 
From Booklist
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. Barbara Jacobs

Pine Needle Basketry: From Forest Floor to Finished Project
Judy Mofield Mallow

June 1997
Hardcover
·
 
From 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.Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc.
