Rose Windows and How to Make Them Coloured Tissue Paper Crafts by Helga Meyerbroeker


Rose Windows and How to Make Them Coloured Tissue Paper Crafts by Helga Meyerbroeker

One of the glories of the medieval cathedrals was the rich display of colour and light in their great stained glass rose windows. Following the same patterns but using simple materials, this book shows how you can make decorative transparencies to hang in a window at home or in school. The author gives step-by-step instructions on how to build up a design out of flower and star shapes, or snowflake and crystal motifs. She describes how to make more complex and magnificent rosettes, reminiscent of the rose windows of old. In the second half of the book, the author shows how to create transparencies to illustrate fairy stories and folk tales.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
