If you struggle with getting ideas out of your head onto paper and into finished art project, I believe this book will help you. It shows you basic processes that are easy to follow, to get ideas onto paper and then to take those ideas onwards to produce a piece of finished work. There are plenty of ideas for developing work. A number of artists are showcased in this book, all exploring textiles in their own way. There is a small section on the rudimentary basics of colour. Part two gives some ideas and inspiration for choosing a subject with which to work. As there are no projects to follow, I found this section a little unfulfilling. However, I still think it is worth getting hold of this book as it might well trigger your own thought processes and show you how to get started. 128pages of colour, with great production form the Batsford team. --http://www.karenplatt.co.uk

ONCE IT ARRIVED I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN IT IS VERY INSPIRING WITH DETAILS ON HOW TO GET STARTED HOW TO DEVELOP IDEAS AND DESIGNS. IT DESCRIBES THE USE OF COLOURS AND TEXTURES. I WOULD CERTAINLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK
Having done a workshop with Kim and introducing it at school it is great to have the outline of the project within the book. Ready made resources and lots of inspiring imagery. It has inspired me to get on with my own work to!
