New Book – Textile Collage

I received a newly released book in the post on Friday it is “Textile Collage” by Mandy Pattullo (Batsford, 2016).

img_8154The book looks at using collage techniques in textile art.  Mandy talks about materials that can be gathered and she is particularly drawn to old fabrics to their textures and resonance.  Other textile artists work are included and discussed in the book and these include Debbie Lyddon and Anne Smith.  There are chapters on colour, composition, stitching, mixing paper and cloth and finishing off.  I was also attracted to the section on ‘Books’ which includes Quilt Books, Scroll Books Concertina fabric books and Wallets.  I have so much more to read thoroughly but I am very excited by the content and imagery and it has already given me lots of ideas.
