Additional information: Zulu Basketry is the first comprehensive pictorial record of a craft form that has endured political change and empowered basket weavers with a sustainable means of making a living. Zulu Basketry focuses on contemporary basketweaving from the Hlabisa area of Kwa-Zulu Natal where some of the best work is produced. Master weavers from this area – like the late Reuben Ndwandwe and Beauty Ngxongo – are represented in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum, New York, and in private collections worldwide. Zulu Basketry includes a historical overview, details of basketry method and technique, basketweaver profiles and a guide to telephone wire basketry, as well as information on sources and suppliers.

Jannie van Heerden is Deputy Chief Education Specialist in the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Education in charge of Visual Arts and Design education in KwaZulu-Natal, and has spent 16 years documenting basketweavers in the field.
