Knotted Lace Flowers

Elena Dickson

Sally Milner Publishing
18,3 x 1,5 x 25,9 cm
152 pages

Book in English
Bibilla Knotted Lace Flowers brings to a modern audience a form of lace that is believed to have originated in antiquity and that has been practised in many countries of the eastern Mediterranean. Knotted lace has all but died out in most places, but it is still made in modern-day Turkey and used to adorn headscarves and other items of clothing. This book was inspired by her desire to create new designs in knotted lace, and is the result of countless hours of experimentation. She has modified the traditional techniques to make her flowers as realistic as possible. Patterns for several flowers commonly found in Australian gardens, and a number of Australian natives, are the result of her work. Elena's detailed step-by-step illustrated instructions for each flower will ensure success for any lacemaker, beginner or expert.
