Beautiful and inspirational,
This review is from: Stitch, Cloth, Shimmer & Shine (Hardcover)
Search Press and Sarah Lawrence come together with a book as full of inspiration as stunning pictures. Lawrence generously shares her techniques for using fabrics, gilding, mica, metals, adhesives, heat, fusible web, paints, markers, inks, stencils, stamps, stitching, embellishments, and crayons to make stunning pieces which can be displayed in their own right or used further as fabrics for projects. She shows us how to create fabrics, beads, embellishments, cords, trims and jewellery.
Lawrence's book is in two parts, the first and by far the largest a series of workshops with step by step instructions and photographs on using materials and techniques. These are clear, well written and illustrated, although a little knowledge of fabric craft is needed in some instances.
A beautiful book, a piece of exuberant creativity I will continue to enjoy and learn from.
