5.0 out of 5 stars Another nice book from Widess and Summit 20 May 2011
By Bonnie Gibson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Gourds + Fiber is another nice addition from authors Jim Widess and Ginger Summit. It's obvious that the authors worked hard to write a book that would offer some new or less commonly seen techniques. The book has a brief history and gourd basics at the beginning, but moves on quickly to explore topics such as teneriffe, beaded rims, lacing, netting, and macrame, woven rims and bases, decorative basketry techniques, and much more. While this is a project book, each project introduces some new techniques and ideas. The wealth of photos and instructions will inspire you to try some new creative ideas and develop new skills. This is a book I will keep - even if I never make any of the projects, the ideas and techniques are wonderful reference material. Printed in paperback, a good value for the price. (Lark Publishing 144 pages $19.95 cover price)
