Details

"Rarely does an embroidery book offer something for every embroiderer at every skill level, but Bobby Britnell has achieved exactly that. Flicking through the pages, there's an image or technique to inspire on every page. Beautiful line drawings inspire readers to stitch and also to pick up a pencil and draw. Essentially, this is a real workbook, written by a textile artist for textile artists."- Stitch magazine

This book will appeal to any textile artist interested in exploring flowers and their design possibilities. Fresh and innovative in its approach, it covers the design process itself, from inspiration to final design, and provides information on the materials used and step-by-step demonstrations of a whole range of techniques including dyeing, monoprinting, block printing, appliqué, foiling, photo-transfer printing, piecing and stitching. Five step-by-step projects build on the skills learnt in the preceding sections and include wall hangings, a pretty needlecase, a pincushion and a cushion cover. Very much aimed at the contemporary textile artist, this beautiful book is designed to inspire and encourage new ideas and experimentation.
