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.

This is a star book! So much more than an art workshop - who has heard of wabi-sabi before? Beautiful poetry; different perspectives on creating art; being 'free' to follow your dreams plus, of course, some how-to instructions. I love it.

My children were amazed that I have bought this CD - really? mom! I was captivated by the tune played on the trailer for the BBC programmes about Arabia. Found it was a track on this CD and had to have it ...not sure about the other tracks!

If you have been a City and Guilds student and have years of experience, this book is not for you. Plenty of instructions on all manner of techniques which we are familiar with but, it doesn't go far enough ... leaves you wishing for more, something really exciting to have been done with these techniques. Decided to keep the book in the end, purely because it has so many different techniques and it will be useful to have everything in one book when a quick memory-jogger is needed.

For a complete beginner learning the techniques of beading with cabachons, this is a must have book. Easy to understand, good diagrams, alternative ideas. Excellent. Not really for those looking for further inspiration and lots of pretty pictures.
