Book Description

Taking the best of the traditional and the new, New Ideas in Goldwork is a beautiful exploration of the potential of this needlework technique, combining it with metal-thread work in experimental ways. Expert and ex-Royal School of Needlework teacher Tracy Franklin takes the technique to new heights to inspire all embroiderers. Reference ideas from notebooks, cuttings and new and old embroideries are included.

Colour, detail and good design are the key points, always showing how exciting and sophisticated gold and metal work can be. Finally, the readers are encouraged to use their own creativity. * Use different techniques in a non-traditional way while still appreciating the basic skills * New in paperback * Modern materials and devices to help you experiment further * Illustrated with beautiful photography, diagrams and step-by-step text
