Featuring: Sharon Foster Ganutell flowers
Ganutell is the creation of flowers from a prepared thread … a thin strand of wire and floss spun together. The completed flowers are quite small and delicate, and often include beads and wire embellishments. The craft comes from the Isle of Malta, where Ganutell flowers grace many churches and are used as wedding favors, headdresses, etc. There is very little information available on learning this craft, and one must be dedicated to the search for instruction and supplies, and devoted to the practice needed to become proficient in the art. The resulting flowers, however, are well worth the time and effort involved.
