New arrivals

Three new books arrived today; Transparency in Textiles by Dawn Thorne, Connecting Art to Stitch by Sandra Meech and Experimental Textiles by Kim Thittichai.

Experimental Textiles is a 'back to basics' book, based on Kim's own textile courses, and is divided into two parts, the first features plenty of design processes and ideas for formulating projects and the second showcases the work of textile artists.

Connecting Art to Stitch has a series of exercises on creating source material with pencil, paint and use of colour, then transferring your designs to fabric.

Transparancy in Textiles explores traditional and innovative transparent techniques, with plenty of examples of work by Dawn and other textile artists.
