9781863513661: Goldwork Embroidery: Designs and Projects (Milner Craft Series)

Ancient European tradition lives on in goldwork, an art form encompassing embroidery with all types of metal threads, not only gold. Once reserved for royalty and other aristocrats, goldwork is now available to all through this fully illustrated guide. Part historical reference, part project plan book, and fully stuffed with pattern templates, it is an authoritative sourcebook on the history, materials, and techniques of goldwork embroidery. There are 15 projects for readers to complete, such as the Ornamental Fan, Portrait of a Woman, a lush Cornucopia, and an arresting Byzantine Angel. Color photographs show examples of medieval designs, and provide visual guideposts through each new project, while a section on metal thread manufacturing delivers a rich historical perspective.

Review:

Aug/Sep 08 An exciting and sometimes challenging technique, goldwork certainly has the wow factor, and the glorious images in this book show the technique in all its glory. The history of goldwork in Britain and Europe is illustrated with photographs of embroidered costumes and textiles from museums and private collections - many of which have never previously been published or been on public view. There are also 15 embroidery projects, each with clear instructions; some are suitable for beginners, while others are more complex, but the chapters on materials and techniques ensure that all of the methods are clearly explained. * Stitch *
