Embellishing Gourds with Basketry, Weaving, Stitching, Macramé & More

By Ginger Summit and Jim Widess

Two ancient practices, gourd decorating and the fiber arts, come together in this one of a kind book. Instructive and educational, Gourds + Fiber presents a fresh and exciting take on gourd decoration with techniques borrowed from the fiber arts like stitching, twining, coiling, plaiting, and lacing.

In addition to a thorough and engaging history of the relationship between gourds and fiber, this book includes 30 projects with clear step-by-step directions that walk you through the prep, design, and creation of beautiful gourds. Color photographs and diagrams illustrate each chapter, and creative uses of materials like pine needles, silk, leather, beads, and felt will inspire your own original designs. Accessible to beginners and full of possibilities for experienced weavers, basket makers, and gourd aficionados, Gourds + Fiber is not to be missed.
