The Technique of Filet Lace

£6.99

Product description

B. T. Batsford Ltd., London, England, 1980. Cloth. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. 144 pp. with 131 photographs and 43 line diagrams. The necessary materials and equipment are few, the technique is not difficult to learn, and its variety of uses, from handkerchief edgings to bedspreads and from chalice veils to altar cloths, cover both secular and ecclesiastic needs. Lack of instructive literature has undoubtedly been one of the reasons for the neglect of this craft in the past. Pauline Knight recognises this and sets out to correct it. Clear instructions are given with the aid of diagrams and photographs so that the technique can be easily mastered. There are also step-by-step instructions for making the backgound netting which, although time-consuming, many people prefer to make themselves rather than rely on a commericlaly produced fabric. The sections of the book include a valuable and carefully researched historical background to filet lace; netting instructions, techniques, how to make a Victorian filet lace bedspread, and a final section on symbols and designs.
