About this product
- DescriptionExamples of medieval stumpwork - the art of embroidering using raised, 3D embellishments - can be found in museums and galleries throughout Europe. Considered among the most intricate and lovely of embroidery styles, it requires a delicate touch. Now, the secrets of stumpwork are revealed through eight beautiful floral projects, all inspired by the 16th-century illuminated 'Book of Hours' created by Jean Bourdichon for Anne of Brittany. The embroideries include 'Corncockle and Dragonfly', 'Swdrop and Cranefly', and the lovely 'Venus' Looking Glass and Bumble-bee'. In addition to instructions for every technique, this fully illustrated book also provides tracing patterns and a comprehensive stitch glossary.
