Published by Batsford, ‘Textile Folk Art’ has been written by Anne Kelly, who has written / co-authored a couple of books in the past. She is also a well respected teacher and has had exhibitions at The Knitting and Stitching shows in recent years. Lets take an inside view of her latest publication.
Across world history, no matter where we go, we see examples of folk art. We can learn a lot about a country by its traditions and this often includes samplers and traditional crafts. This book has been designed to convey to us how we ourselves can create our own ‘heirlooms’, yet will it inspire us to apply our own narratives to make craft pieces?
