My husband loves Celtic design books and we have many. This is by far the best. Not for the crafts but for the applicable designs. Because the designs have been applied to crafts, they are ready for you to apply to your latest works. We make jewelry, gourd art (purses), and leather purses as well as cuffs. Pulling a round design from this book and applying it to a gourd purse or something liner to a cuff bracelet is what we are always looking for. This book is made for that. Since Celtic design is a pattern to be followed, it makes sense to find a book that has applicable patterns to follow. We really like this book.
Fun book. I'm looking forward to doing some of these!
I was looking for more Celtic designs that I could incorporate in to my quilts. Most of the designs are more suitable for painting and drawing. I enjoyed the suggestions for jewelry but no really good designs for needlework. :(
The book is fantastic, covers great projects and they turn out lovely.
a good variety of crafts to do, detailed instructions, I can not wait to get started on them. There are so many it is hard to choose what one to do first.
This is an excellent resource book especially for artists wanting to explore design of the celtic tradition, including clear instructions on how to get started in calligraphy, braiding, stained glass, and applying classic motifs to whatever medium you use. The colorful pages are full of designs that can be used as is or as inspirations to create your own variations. I love this book!
Can't wait to make these crafts!
If you like craft explain by detail on how to do it, all the content in this book is explain with words and pictures through the process of each single craft/thing you decide to do.
I love this book. It does teach you with details that you can apply by doing the craft in the book or choose your craft and thete are the explanations for you to put do your work as your imagination guides you.
