RSN: EMBROIDERED BOXES
Techniques, projects & pure inspiration by Heather Lewis
Part of an exciting new series spearheaded by the Royal School of Needlework, this forward-looking guide explores the intricate art of embroidering boxes for use as keepsakes and jewellery boxes.
This beautiful, practical guide to creating and embellishing embroidered boxes is written by Heather Lewis, a tutor with the Royal School of Needlework. It contains a history of the embroidered box, from the seventeenth century to the present day, and features techniques and guidance for needleworkers wishing to apply their skills to a practical application of the craft.
There are three projects to try: a small treasure chest with a curved lid, embroidered dragonfly detail and a false floor; a hexagonal box with a beautiful embroidered lid depicting afternoon tea, and an intricate stumpwork casket with a mirror in the lid and a hidden drawer. Each has a template and extensive instructions for preparation, embroidery and construction.
Boxes are a beautiful way to display your embroidery. Here you will learn everything you need to know.
