Celtic Knots: Mastering the Traditional Patterns Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A new step-by-step guide to the most popular form of Celtic design. Celtic knotwork is the single most widely appealing form within the rich repertoire of Celtic design. Aidan Meehan's new book provides step-by-step instruction for anyone who wants to master the traditional methods of freehand Celtic knot design and then progress to designing fresh knotwork patterns and variations. First, Meehan carefully and clearly explains how to draw the basic knot. Once that technique has been mastered, Meehan shows how to create designs with more complex knots, and how to draw border layouts. The book takes you through every step of the process, and exercises at the end of each unit ensure that you have mastered the techniques before you proceed to the next stage. 2843 illustrations.
