Folk Art: Style and Design

Folk Art: Style and Design

by StewartWalton (Author), SallyWalton (Author)


This practical book presents decorative ideas derived from the European folk art traditions which travelled to the United States in the 18th and early-19th centuries. It demonstrates how this style can be achieved at home without specialist materials. Blending historical information with examples, Folk Art includes textiles such as quilts, hooked rugs and patchwork cushion covers; stencilled motifs for all surfaces; lanterns; and painted chairs, tables and chests.
