Textile Techniques and Inspiration from the Natural World
By Anne Kelly (Author)
Create original textiles inspired by plants, flowers, gardens, insects, and birds. This gorgeous guide teaches fiber artists how to draw directly from nature, use sketchbooks and mood boards to explore their local environment, and make small pieces (such as folding books) based on observational drawing and stitch. Covering everything from stenciling motifs, to printing with plants onto fabric, to taking your design into three dimensions, this stunning collection includes a range of projects.
