Product Overview

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 Part historical reference, part project plan book, and fully stuffed with pattern templates, it is an authoritative sourcebook on the history, materials, and techniques of goldwork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.
