Folk Art: Style and Design

Folk Art: Style and Design

by Sally Walton, Stewart Walton

Editorial Reviews

Barbara Jacobs
Just because the acquiring of American folk art has become a serious passion, it doesn't mean that contemporary examples can't be fashioned--if readers are handy at crafts--and enjoyed. The Waltons have produced a crafts book paying homage to native artisans, a tome to be used for its excellent instructions and step-by-step color photographs. Included among their 30-some projects are things both whimsical and practical, including a wooden sheep dummy head, a Baltimore beauty hooked rug, a chalkware compote, and a metal weather vane. Introductions to each craft are brief in words but long on pictures; unfortunately, the teaching of basic techniques--from needlepoint to wood carving--is best delegated to other books.
