Sketchbook Explorations

For Mixed-Media and Textile Artists

by Shelley Rhodes



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Embroiderers and textile artists can make the most of their sketchbooks with this practical and inspirational guide to mixed media. 
Working with a combination of paper, fabric, found objects, pencil, ink, and paint, Shelley Rhodes demonstrates how a sketchbook can act as an illustrated diary for textile artists, and as a starting point for expanding their creative process. She explores the importance and joy of creating a sketchbook; ways to record and investigate inspirational ideas; mixed-media techniques, including layering and three-dimensional sketching; going on location; and using electronic devices to develop projects. Sketchbook Explorations is the ideal companion for both beginners and more experienced artists in search of exciting techniques.

Shelley Rhodes is an artist who teaches workshops covering all aspects of design, stitch, drawing, sketchbooks, and mixed-media work. She is a member of the prestigious Textile Study Group and has written for a variety of publications including Drawn to Stitch and Somerset Studio. She lives in the UK.
