Author Bio

Sylvie Begot has been creative from a young age. She put her interest in crafts on hold to train as a paramedic, and returned to her interest in basketry during maternity leave for her third child. She then began to share her passion for basketweaving through workshops.

Sylvie's need to source and create specific teaching materials led her to publish her first book on cane basketry in France in 2007. Prior to the publication of Basketweaving for Beginners, Sylvie published another four books on basketry in her native France.

She now runs basketry workshops for schoolchildren as well as for trainee occupational therapists, in Lyon, France. She has a particular interest in basketry using natural products such as cane, willow and rattan as well as upcycled materials.
