Overview The term 'whitework' covers a range of traditional but much-loved hand embroidery techniques, including drawn thread work, pulled work, cutwork, Richelien and Mountmellick. These techniques have been around for centuries, but in recent years embroiderers have been developing them to create more contemporary and experimental pieces. This is the first book to cover the new, exciting whitework being produced today. It contains full instructions on the traditional techniques used in whitework, plus ways to explore and develop these techniques for more contemporary applications. Illustrated with a wealth of designs by the finest embroiderers and textile artists working in the field today, this practical guide provides an exciting snapshot of new trends within a traditional context. Covers : Tools and equipment * Threads and materials * History of whitework techniques * Stitch glossary * Shadow work * Pulled work * Drawn thread work * Mountmellick * Broderie Anglaise * Experimental work
