Like many craft books this book has projects for all levels of experience, clear instuctions, and excellent photographs BUT unlike some, there are no missing steps! I have now lashed an antler on a gourd rim and as a handle for a basket, but I still have not drilled holes in the antlers yet. Thanks to this book I now know what size hole and angle to use for specific purposes. My next one will use the antler as a stand/base for the gourd...so many great ideas and examples of how an antler can be used in art.

This book is very informative. The directions are so easy to follow as there are step by step photos to show you how to do the technique. I would recommend this book if you want to learn how to weave with antlers or use them as part of gourd art.

I've been creating gourd art and baskets for 20 years now and a good percentage of my art includes antler, which I carve. These are the most fulfilling and expressive art forms I've ever been involved with. I've had this book for a while now and continually find inspiration in the detailed and beautifully illustrated projects in this book. Betsy sure delivers ideas that any gourd or basket enthusiast can utilize in their own art creations. Even if someone doesn't use antler to enhance their gourds or baskets, there are plenty of other ideas making the purchase of this book worthwhile.

There are 20 projects along with so much information and "eye candy" in this book. Betsy also provides sources and bibliographies of artists who contributed to this wonderful book.

If you've wondered about using shed antler to enhance a basket or gourd, this book will take you from wondering to accomplishment!

I enjoy using antlers in my gourd art and basketry. Im always on the lookout for new ideas. This book had some tips that came handy for me. However I was disappointed in the lack of step by step photographs for the projects. I'm one of those people who can not translate written directions well. I need step by step photos to make things simple for me to understand and a single photo of the completed project isn't enough. I have enough hands on experience that I can usually figure out what they mean and how to do what they want me to do but more photos would make a good book even better. The gallery of antler art is a wonderful inspiration. Lots of great ideas using different items. I feel the money spent on this book is well worth it and that it is a great addition to my library

Just what I was looking for. It starts with the basics and works into more complicated antler basket projects. Love the gallery in the back with a variety of finished antler and gourd items.
