Hi Julia... I have a great workbook on how to create Celtic knot designs... It has been out of print for a long time. I can scan a few pages for you if you want.

Cheers

Thank you !  That would be great!

I found the book by George Bain on Amazon.com. I got it for 28 cents.

Hi Julie - don't know how your Celtic knot designs are going - but, I got started on them from this YouTube Video and the basic concept of this can be used for even the most elaborate knots....hope it helps.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9wt7RWn9PA&feature=colike

i've been keeping an eye on this thread since it started. i found the idea of celtic knots fascinating. i am also involved in figure drawing (which i unfortunately can't post here). it occurred to me that maybe the two could be combined, and after a lot or reading about celtic knot techniques and 'fiddling', i came up with this little doodle, which i thought was interesting.

now i am not very creative when i'm not painting something from a reference. i'm not sure what to do with this. the only thing that i thought of was maybe develop a lino print with it... which of course i have never tried, lol! any other ideas out there? or if the idea inspires you, go for it! i'd love to know what you do with it! :o)

I looked online and found a book on designing it. Hit Amazon and Ebay... they got the goods!
