Description


This original and exciting guide to lace is a visual feast of inspiring step-by-step projects and galleries; it includes in-depth features relating to the history of lace; it will encourage you to experiment, inspire you with handy tips, and provide sources for further inspiration.

Typically associated with frilly hankies and flouncy collars that are time-consuming to make and invariably white, the 30 projects in this book span the colour spectrum and range from those that can be made in an afternoon to those that are more involved.

This original and exciting guide to lace is a visual feast of inspiring step-by-step projects and galleries; it includes in-depth features and fascinating asides relating to the history of lace; it will encourage you to experiment, inspire you with handy tips, and provide sources for further inspiration. Projects include using needle lace, needle weaving and drawn-thread work on fabric, paper, and in conjunction with found items. Some projects feature techniques such as using self-hardening clay and papier mache; some feature ready-made lace, either entirely, or as something that can be added to.

About the Author


Elizabeth Healey originally trained as a graphic designer at the London College of Printing, after which she worked in various design groups before defecting to the world of illustrated books. For as long as she can remember she has made things - usually with yarn or cloth, but sometimes with paper and clay. She is particularly interested in utility stitching and tries to use recycled textiles wherever possible, in a way that looks fresh, modern and urban rather than old and fusty. Elizabeth has contributed articles to the following magazines:
Knitting, Making, Crafty, Felt Matters and Pretty Patches. Her first book, Stitch, Fabric & Thread, was published in 2016.
