            Creating useful and decorative pieces with natural materials is extremely enjoyable and satisfying. Many of the projects in this book can be achieved by those with little or no weaving experience, and there are projects that require some previous weaving knowledge for those who w...ant to extend their weaving repertoire or who like a challenge. From delicate cords for jewellery to rugged hefty thick ropes used in outdoor art, from useful bottle carriers and decorative flask holders to toys for children and pets, window blinds and table runners, mobiles and fiery dragons, or Taniwha, this book shows how basic weaving, knotting and plaiting techniques can be used for the creation of any number of useful, fun, and beautiful items with wide appeal. With its strength, durability, flexibility while green and hardness when dry, New Zealand flax is an ideal material for weavers to create practical items as well as decorative pieces. As a sustainable and biodegradable resource, it is a perfect weaving material for a world with too much plastic.

            Wallace Bain retired in early 2020 after 28 distinguished years as a Coroner, most recently in Rotorua. During these years Mr Bain developed a national reputation for his sensitivity and compassion in dealing with difficult cases such as those of Nia Glassie and Moko Rangitoherir...i. That a child is killed in New Zealand as a result of abuse every five weeks he finds "unacceptable". He has also developed a reputation for being "a Coroner on the warpath" for his forthright demands from time to time that New Zealand's laws and regulations be changed to protect ordinary citizens. His work as a Coroner, says Wallace Bain, has been to speak for the dead to take care of the living. "After climbing the mountain I can finally enjoy the view."
