Description: A guide to North American Indian Quillworking. Quillwork, once practiced by Great Lakes and Plains Indian tribes, has inspired Christy Ann Hensler to save this delicate art from extinction. Mrs. Hensler's detailed step-by-step instructions and how-to sketches describe the techniques of quillworking, from plucking and preparing the quills, to finishing the product. Based on the original methods used by the Indians, Mrs. Hensler has brought quillworking into the twentieth century with her contemporary quilled creations. Color photographs from the Denver Museum of Art collection depict the fragility and richness of many antique items. Beautiful examples of the author's own quillwork display the many modern applications of the art.
