Textile Landscape

Painting with Cloth in Mixed Media

by Cas Holmes



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Combine the textural quality of stitchwork and the spontaneity of paint with this practical, beautiful guide to landscapes in mixed-media textile art. 
Renowned author Cas Holmes brings together the world of the stitcher and that of the painter as she demonstrates her technique known as “stitch-sketching” and shows how to develop your approach to textile art. Focusing on the common language between the two forms, she begins with basic advice on keeping a sketchbook, stitching on paper and fabric, and working digitally. Cas then looks at both urban and intimate spaces, capturing the changing seasons, the technical aspects of painting and dying cloth, experimenting with photos, creating stitchscapes, attaining inspiration from found objects, and so much more.

Cas Holmes is one of the UK's most renowned textile artists. She exhibits widely, runs courses at West Dean College, has written for magazines including The Quilter, and has contributed to Workshop on the Web. She lives in Maidstone, Kent. She’s also the author of Stitch Stories and The Found Object in Textile Art, and the coauthor of Connected Cloth, all published by Batsford.
