Celtic knotwork is the single most widely appealing form within the rich repertoire of Celtic design. This course will teach you, how to develop a myriad of patterns from a basic knot. Once you have mastered the basic knot, you can learn how to create designs with more complex knots and how to draw border layouts. Each unit takes you through step by step and exercises at the end of each ensure that you have mastered the techniques before you proceed to the next stage. If you practise for about twenty minutes each day, you can complete the course in five months.
The book provides essential guidance for anyone interested in mastering the traditional methods of freehand Celtic knot design, or for anyone who wants to learn how to design fresh knotwork patterns and generate variations that fulfil the formal requirements of classical knot design. Artists, designers, calligraphers, craftspeople and everyone interested in Celtic design will find it invaluable.
