Bibilla Knotted Lace Flowers - Elena Dickson paperback

 

Bibilla Knotted Lace Flowers brings to a modern audience a form of lace that is believed to have originated in antiquity and that has been practised in many countries of the eastern Mediterranean. References to it were made in the works of Home and Plato. Knotted lace has all but died out in most places, but it is still made in modern-day Turkey and used to adorn headscarves and other items of clothing. Elena Dickson's interest in Bibilla flowers began many years ago. This book was inspired by her desire to create new designs in knotted lace, and is the result of countless hours of experimentation. She has modified the traditional techniques to make her flowers as realistic as possible, rather than the symbolic representations common to the older style. Patterns for several flowers commonly found in Australian gardens, and a number of Australian natives, are the result of her work. Elena's detailed step-by-step illustrated instructions for each flower will ensure success for any lacemaker, beginner or expert. Elena Dickson's previous titles include Knotted Lace in the Eastern Mediterranean Traditions and Mediterranean Knotted Lace. Elena travels the world extensively conducting workshops teaching her lace making techniques.
