Flower Pounding Summary


Flower Pounding: Textiles Handbook by Linda Rudkin

Leading on from the author's first book, Natural Dyes, this is a general introduction to flower pounding, a very simple and traditional technique for transferring leaf and flower patterns, colours and shapes to cloth. The results are instant, and no complicated or expensive equipment is required. It can be done simply with the plant matter, fabric, fixings for securing the material, and a hammer. Extension exercises in the form of leaf printing, applique and flower trapping are included because each of these techniques adds dimension and depth to the design. Further detail can be added using embroidery or quilting. Basic methods and techniques are introduced, and then the reader is encouraged to create their own work.

Flower Pounding Reviews


What fun this book is - and so simple. This is a fun technique, great for children and I think there could be lots of possibilities for stretching the technique beyond the basic that are shown. Workshop on the Web Following Natural Dyes, the author introduces flower pounding, a simple, traditional technique for transferring leaf and flower patterns, colours and shapes to cloth. The effects are subtle but Linda suggests ways to incorporate the technique into stitch and ways to preserve your work. Embroidery magazine
