DRAWN TO STITCH: Line, drawing and mark-making in textile art
£17.99 POST FREE
This book is aimed at those who recognise the need for drawing as a basis for creative work, but are perhaps reticent when it comes to actually drawing. It aims to engender confidence and a readiness to enjoy the drawing process, and to develop stitch trials.
An excerpt from the Publisher’s blurb:
“The book covers line and mark-making tools, materials and methods – including printing and mixed media techniques – and then moves into stitch, explaining how to interpret many different line qualities, including crisp and sharp, soft and diffused, raised and recessed.
Full of inspiring ideas, this book is also illustrated with stunning examples of stitched textile work from some of today’s finest practitioners, providing insight into their creative thought processes.”
