A gorgeous and inspirational book, showing how to create pictures with thread. Increasing numbers of textile artists and designers now use thread to draw
with, on a wide range of mixed-media - including
paper, flat fabric, manipulated fabric, various resistant materials including
ceramics - experimenting with stencils and stitching, combining stitch with
monoprinting, using both hand and machine stitch, and using everyday materials
such as baking paper and newspaper to create one-off pieces. Packed with wonderful examples of work by contemporary
makers, this book shows how to design and develop your own work using
needlework, paper, print, sketching, and stitching.
