These books were created for bloomsbury publishing, a leading independent publishing house.
Basic techniques are introduced, and the reader is then encouraged to experiment with the chosen medium, creating their own piece of work. Works by featured artists and designers provide inspiration, with tips on how similar styles and effects can be achieved. Each section also includes plenty of stimulating ideas for source and reference material.
Topics covered include: images on fabric; creating fabrics; wireframe construction; 3D wire construction; using a heat tool; materials manipulation; adapting traditional techniques; joining, seaming, bonding, layering; mould-making, casting and forming.
