Description - Textile Nature by Anne Kelly

Draw from the natural world of plants, flowers, gardens, insects and birds for inspiration in your textile art.

Plants, flowers, gardens, insects and birds are a rich source of inspiration for artists and designers of all kinds. This beautiful guide demonstrates how to get the most out of your surroundings to create original and unique pieces in textiles.

Beginning with Drawing from Nature, the book demonstrates how to use sketchbooks and create mood boards to explore your local environment and landscape, building up to making small pieces such as folding books based on observational drawing and stitch. Moving on to Floral Inspiration, the author shows how to use plants and flowers in your work, from using stencilled flower motifs as embellishment to printing with plants onto fabric and making simple relief prints. Finally, Taking Flight demonstrates how to move into threedimensions and sculptural work with birds and insects made from cloth.

Featuring step-by-step projects as well as work from contemporary artists, makers and collaborative groups throughout, this practical and beautiful guide shows how practitioners of all kinds can draw from the natural world for making and inspiration.
