Just got this old book, new to me, called “Basketry Technology”. It’s mostly for archaeologists on how to identify certain traits of baskets in order to track which culture the basket came from. It’s pretty great in a lot of ways. Explains weaving really well and various techniques. My objective in reading it is to be able to understand how to look at a basket and be able to reproduce the weaving techniques that was used to make it. My ultimate goal is to replicate the oldest baskets found in Germany and France where a large portion of my heritage comes from.
Are there any other weavers out there who have used this book (or similar books) along the same lines?
I’ve been researching the basketry school and culture in Lichtenfels, Germany and sort of have a half-cocked plan to go to their three-year baksetry college. It will probably never happen, but one can dream.
