In Decorative Stencils for Your Home, Mary MacCarthy, one of Britain's leading stencillers, turns to the very best work of the Arts and Crafts designers to create an imaginative range of stencils that would grace any home. A willow bough coffee table inspired by one of William Morris's most famous wallpaper designs, a director's chair based on a ceramic tile by William de Morgan, a hutch derived from a design by Edward Burne-Jones and Murray Fairfax: these are just a few of the book's twenty elegant projects.
Each project is demonstrated with full-color step-by-step photographs, accompanied by stencil designs you can trace. In addition there is a comprehensive techniques section, which includes advice on how to create your own stencil designs, making the book suitable for both beginners and more experienced stencillers.
Lavishly illustrated and packed with useful, practical tips, Decorative Stencils for Your Home will inspire every would-be stenciller.
