Mary writes `The question I get asked most after teaching the method of creating freehand Knotwork is 'have you written a book about it?' Diverse groups over the last few years have discovered that contrary to what some of them were told at school they can create something beautiful with a pencil and paper! Experienced artists have enjoyed the freedom of doodling and colouring and everyone has discovered a new way of praying. 'The Freehand Celtic Knot Manual' takes you through, step by step, the techniques I use in my artwork and gives you ideas for using them in prayer and meditation. Examples of how I've used the knots in my work are included and a short bibliography for further exploration.'
