The Art and Craft of Goldwork will inspire beginners and experienced embroiders alike to create their own designs, or to make one of the 15 stunning projects, all of which have clear instructions and detailed templates. Each project is contemporary incorporating elements of historical design, including French eighteenth century floral designs, the timeless of Indian wedding saris, the charm of Byzantine jewellery, the frivolity of the Belle Epoch and the swirls of European and African folk art.
