5.0 out of 5 stars Best in show, 12 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Goldwork: Techniques, Projects and Pure Inspiration (Paperback)
This is the best book of goldwork I have ever seen. The projects are beautiful and clearly explained, and there is so much inspiration in there. The author uses classic techniques but also innovates with colour, new materials and working in 3 dimensions. Even my husband (who doesn't sew at all) was mighty impressed. Apart from anything else, the book is a beautiful object- the photography is excellent and it is well laid out. It's good to pick up and enjoy at odd moments as well as using it for instruction. The day after I got the book from amazon, I went to the knitting and stitching show at Alexandra Palace, where I could see the book getting snapped up everywhere, clearly my fellow enthusiasts agree with my opinion! Right at the end of the show, I actually found hazel herself, saw her work first hand and spoke to her, which was really lovely. I found out she runs goldwork courses down the road from me, which was an unexpected bonus!
