“Converting a tightly wrapped bundle of raffia into a stylish hat or basket can be a very satisfying pastime.  It’s also simple and economical – even financially rewarding once you become proficient.
Liz Doyle’s book takes you diagrammatically step-by-step through the techniques of plaiting, starting and shaping crowns and brims, in designs ranging from a straight-brimmed sunhat to a sou-wester.
There are instructions also for a variety of baskets, including simple storage and carry baskets, and old-fashioned flower trug, and a coiled basket based on an Aboriginal design.”
