Product description

Of jy dit nou kroelwerk of Jacobeaanse borduurwerk noem, hierdie vryhandborduurwerk word al eeue lank beoefen en is vandag nog gewild onder kunsnaaldwerkers. Danksy die aard van die motiewe en die tradisie om baie steke in een projek te gebruik, is hierdie borduurvorm ideaal vir skeppende uitdrukking. Hazel Blomkamp gebruik in hierdie boek 'n groot verskeidenheid materiaal om tegnieke by te werk en borduurders te inspireer om binne die bree grense van kroelwerkstyle te eksperimenteer. Die oorspronklike ontwerpe sluit in: Projekte met krale en metaalgaring om sprankel en tekstuur te verleen; monochrome borduurwerk waarvoor verskillende soorte garing en krale, alles in dieselfde kleurskakering, gebruik word; tegnieke wat in naaldkantwerk gebruik word om die ontwerpe met tekstuur te definieer; tradisionele borduurwerk wat met satynsteek en die verskeie variasies van traliehegwerk interessant gemaak word. Die voltooide borduurwerk word op maniere ten toon gestel wat nie net mooi lyk nie, maar ook funksioneel is in die huis.

Author information

Hazel Blomkamp has dabbled with all the needlecrafts since childhood. When her children were babies she developed a passion for embroidery to break the tedium of life with toddlers, using it as her evening reward for having got through the day with her sanity intact. Her children are now young adults and she still embroiders in front of the television every night. She has been designing for the past 18 years. Preferring to design projects which appear to be traditional, she pushes the boundaries by introducing other forms of needlecraft into traditional techniques, exploring further in everything that she does. Along with designing, she runs a busy website from home. She teaches at her home studio, in Pietermaritzburg, KZN, and travels throughout South Africa and to Australia teaching embroidery and fine beadwork. She is a regular contributor to South African and Australian embroidery magazines and is a columnist for South African Stitches Magazine. Hazel Blomkamp has an active mail-order business for all embroidery and bead requisites related to her designs. It is possible that, from time to time, bead and thread colours are discontinued. If you are unable to find specific threads and beads for any of the projects in this book, please email Hazel at info@hazelblomkamp.co.za and she will be able to send requisites to you or, in the event that they have been discontinued, will be able to suggest viable alternatives. Screen-printed fabric panels, bead packs and thread packs for all of the projects in this book are available from her website.
