Bring the ancient beauty of Chinese knots into any craft practice, and learn the many uses this intricate art form can have in your own home and style.
The Complete Book of Chinese Knotting is the culmination of 20 years of research into the ancient art of Chinese knot tying, presented in a way that’s easy to learn. Inspired by the decorative knots that embellish ancient artifacts such as pots, jade, statuary, boxes, paintings and other Chinese art, the author has systematically classified each of the basic Chinese knots, many almost forgotten, and their variations.
Creative applications reveal the practical ways to incorporate Chinese knotting into everyday life, but the artistic possibilities abound too—such as using this mini macrame for beaded jewelry.
In addition to the summary of the four major techniques for tying basic knots and the nine main ways of modifying them, the author introduces 56 brand new knots in this book—each accompanied by helpful color photos and diagrams.
Take advantage of the little-known methods of this Chinese craft, and bring an age-old decorative tradition into your creations.
