Most basket weaves are created on two axes but the triaxial method — also known as mad weaving — is formed on three axes for a strong and distinctive fabric that lends itself well to color patterns.

This detailed, easy-to-follow guide reintroduces the traditional craft to modern hand weavers with instructions for many different basket patterns. Author Shereen LaPlantz, an accomplished weaver and instructor, experimented for several years before developing a streamlined approach to making mad weave baskets. She begins with the basics, advancing to examples of color patterns, shaping, double weave, and surface embellishments, and she concludes with tips for finishing touches, from handles and lids to feet and reinforcements. Every step is accompanied by a clear diagram. Readers will delight in this guide's tremendous variety of patterns and find inspiration in its helpful suggestions and examples.

"In 1988 Mary Williams received a gift that changed the direction of her work as a weaver. It was a photographed copy of a manuscript weaving book written by her husband's great-great-great-grandfather, Edward Hussey, who was a weaver in North Wales. The book was stared in 1788, so that it was written just before the Industrial Revolution which radically changed the lives of handweavers and the history of handweaving. Williams has deciphered the material in the book and, where possible, worked out the weaving diagrams and tested them by weaving textiles from them. This is an invaluable book for anyone interested in historical weaving patterns or simply wanting unusual and beautiful patterns to weave."--Back cover.
