Description
In this lavishly illustrated survey of rural crafts -- from bookbinding to punched-tin work -- Miranda Innes, herself a passionate collector of country crafts, celebrates country style and the pleasure and artistry of working with natural materials such as wood, wool, rattan, and more. For each of the featured crafts, the author provides a fascinating look at the work of a leading artist in the field and offers an accessible project, with step-by-step instructions and photographs.The projects (among them a wooden birdhouse complete with miniature cow weathervane, a gilded lampshade decorated with shell patterns, and a rag rug with a bold design of strutting roosters) require neither expensive materials nor special training and cost almost nothing to make.Traditional Country Crafts will appeal, both aesthetically and practically, to everyone whose heart is in the country.
