5.0 out of 5 stars How to think outside the box, 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stitch and Structure: Design and Technique in two and three-dimensional textiles (Hardcover)
Buy this book to learn how to think "out of the embroidery box" and to inspire you to produce experimental and innovative textiles. Read it to understand and be able to follow the process of creativity. It will teach you to develop your own ideas and a personal style of working whatever you chose as your inspiration. Drawing to gather information is crucial to the artist embroiderer and practical ways to do this are suggested. Drawings, pages from sketch books and quality illustrations of Jean's own work enhance the text. Practical exercises include making new surfaces with and without a ground fabric, changing fabrics' structure through manipulation and working over moulds to create three dimensional pieces. An excellent inspirational book from a first class teacher.

This review is from: Stitch and Structure: Design and Technique in two and three-dimensional textiles (Hardcover)
I have waited a long time for Jean to write a book. It does not dissapoint. As one other review states, you read the words and hear the voice. Jean shares her ideas freely. Sketches and photographs of her work inspire, get the creative juices flowing and the fingers itching to get started on new ideas. A truely inspirational book from a truly inspirational embroiderer.
