Contrasting Elements / Jae Maries
Well respected U.K. textile artist Jae Maries shows how to bring dynamism into your textile work with the use of contrast: contrast in color, contrast in materials, contrast in imagery. The techniques explored are very simple and are described through step-by-step instructions which can become the basis for work in greater depth. Paper techniques translate to fabric and stitch and the book’s concentration on the use of contrast will electrify your work. Discover contrasts by painting, cutting, knotting, knitting, weaving, wrapping and stitching.
