Wendy is an experienced basket maker, teacher and willow grower, and has previously shared her knowledge through the very popular 'Make This Willow Basket' series of willow kits, many of the instructions of which appear in her first book. She is largely self taught and knows how difficult that can be for anyone starting out in willow work. For this reason she was inspired to write her books, guiding the complete novice through a virtual apprenticeship to experienced basket maker and enabling them to produce quality work for selling purposes. With richly illustrated, easy to follow instructions, each project includes a variety of techniques and tips that can be applied to other work.
