THE SITUPON RUSH PATTERN BOOK  
BRAND NEW EDITION 
As well as describing the traditional rush pattern on rectangular and trapezoid seats, this new, updated edition covers more unusual patterns, and also some of the myriad methods of dealing with drop-in seats. Loads of new full-colour photos and diagrams. It covers the use of ready twisted rush, paper rush, seagrass and other suitable materials. (Note that it does not go into the use of natural hand-twisted rush, as we believe this is a technique that really needs a hands-on teacher.)
