John Seymour, best-selling author of The Forgotten Arts, again turns his attention to the crafts of a bygone age.
With matchless enthusiasm and deep affection he describes the largely unsung crafts of the women of the household, celebrating not only their skills, patience and care, but also a way of life now lost.
A beautiful record of the techniques and artefacts that were once an integral part of everyday life, Forgotten Household Crafts takes you on a nostalgic tour of the home of your grandparents and great grandparents. Filled with detailed illustrations and intriguing period photos.
