Product Description

Review

Lots of useful tips to help you think outside the box, and suggestions on how to record your experiments ... There are nine projects in all, but what is striking about them is that they are relatively simple designs, but look much more complex. The beauty of these is that the basic techniques have been combined really effectively, and there are instructions given on the inspiration, the preparation and execution of the pieces ... If you are reasonably confident in basic techniques, but want to experiment in a new arena, this would be an interesting book. Workshop on the Web

This is a very understated little book which actually contains a mine of information. The look is contemporary, the work hightly individual and that of highly experienced and qualified textile designer/artist. It covers a number of techniques in a matter of fact way, using easily available materials such as baking parchment, collage pictures from magazines, oddments of fabric and multi media drawing and painting materials. This isn't really a book to lead you step by step to making a copy of anything here, it more about showing you how to use some multi media techniques as you might learn in art school, but very much for your own ends. A lot of the advise, about choosing a theme and colour choice, for instance appear to be lightly dealt with, within a few words, but those words provides better information that many books of much greater length. The approach never talks down to the reader as a lot of books of this nature do, but rather encourages real creativity and thoughfulness in a highly thoughtful and helpful way, so you can find your own contemporary style. A great little book, I would highly recommend it to all my students on the BA Textiles course.

This book is all about creating images with thread and a wide range of mixed media. The work isn't like that of artists that come to mind when I think of creating pictures with thread - Alice Kettle and a host of similar artists that have followed. Or the work of Jan Beaney for instance. This work is more arty. If you want to experiment with a number of different materials, then this is a good book to try.

Nicely laid out book but all the work is the author's and in her house style. The author is an illustrator and this shows in the designs as they look sketchy and incomplete. The instructions are minimal e.g. Think of design, get paper, get pencil. Techniques are nothing special either. I received 'The Sketchbook Challenge' at the same time which was far more stimulating.

Don't understand how this has so many good reviews. Perhaps it is aimed at those textile artists just starting out on their creative journey. I sent mine back.
