One of the world's best textile artists brings insight, technique and new ideas to one of the most exciting areas of textile work - three dimensional art using mixed media. Inspired by the landscape, nature and concern for the environment, her work combines textile and non textile elements with construction. Cloth, felted fibres, paper and rubber are contrasted with concrete, willow, wood and metal. Depending on the theme being explored, she juxtaposes fragile with hard, natural with man-made. The techniques range from stitching, wrapping, couching, and knotting to sawing, drilling, and casting.
This book covers the ideas, design process and techniques that Ann uses, and encourages the reader to broaden their horizons in their textile work. Beautiful artwork throughout from both the author and some of the best textile artists in the world will inspire every textiler and artist out there.
