5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational for beginner textile artists, 24 Jun. 2012
By 
This review is from: Stitching Pictures (Paperback)
As a mixed media textile artist I find this book invaluable. The author has a Goldsmith College background and has exciting textile ideas.I really like the idea of the easy things to be found round the house ie coffee, other dyes etc and the monoprinting, which I hope to have a go at I liked her contemporary stitching techniques and use of metals such as safety pins. I liked her interest in handmade paper too.

I would like my art to be a legacy and I was wondering how on we can preserve textile art and the backgrounds that are dyed with coffee as there has to be some life expectancy in textile art. I am not sure what sort of things to go for. I would certainly like a bit of information on how to preserve our art.

I love this book, it is a bit like having a 'friend' in the house who likes textile art and can come up with some exciting ideas.

I would love to see a new book!!
