Description - Orizomegami: Fold and Dye Designs for Paper and Fabric by Kristin Lawson
With only a few illustrated folds, some paper, some clips and some food colouring, you can start creating your own paper designs. The concepts are so simple and safe that even young children can produce stunning results. Combine a few more folds with commercial dyes and teenagers can play with the whole colour spectrum. You can use the papers to cover journals, books, make note paper and cut kirigami designs. Add mordants to your pieces and adults can produce amazing results, both on paper and cloth. When you combine shibori with orizomegami you will finish with artisanal quality cloth. No two pieces will be the same. You do not need to study colour theory or space and harmony in relation to design to produce amazing pieces. It is all explained and illustrated in an easy-to-understand way, with page upon page of full-colour samples. You do not need expensive equipment to start. This is the perfect entry point for paper or fabric design enthusiasts, producing complex looking pieces with minimal time and expense, but maximum impact.
Schools, textile teachers, paper makers, art students, fashion designers and mums looking for school holiday entertainment should consider this book a must.
