Printed Book

Embroidered Birds and Their Habitats

Hand embroidery techniques and inspiration - an essential addition to any embroiderer's, or bird lover's, bookshelf.



Multi-talented visual artist Judy Wilford invites you to share in her enduring passions: the arts, the land that surrounds her, and the birds she has observed and embroidered over many years.

Inspiring and practical in equal measures, this book showcases dozens of Judy's lifelike finished embroideries alongside clear, practical advice. You will learn what embroidery materials and equipment you need; how to research and choose a suitable bird and its habitat to embroider; and how to draw up a working design that best displays your chosen bird and its place in the wider landscape.

Two complete projects walk you through every embroider process, from initial inspirations through to completed artwork, allowing you to pick up all the skills and techniques needed to complete a hand-stitched, low relief panel.

The book also includes finishing techniques such as mounting and framing, and a stitch glossary that includes Judy's own adapted stitches.
