Three-Dimensional Textiles : with Coils, Loops, Knots and Nets Hardback

Description

Innovative techniques with coils, plaits, loops, knots and nets for textile artistsCreate two-and three-dimensional structures with embellishmentsBasic construction techniques with step-by-step diagramsStunning samples and finished textile piecesAn important book for textile artists looking for new ways of working in two- and three-dimensions, using the techniques of interweaving, looping, twining, knotting, netting and coiling.

Traditionally used in basketry and net-making, these simple techniques - that need no machinery and no looms - are perfect for textile artists looking for fresh ideas.

A range of tactile materials can be used in these techniques, from yarns to hemp, nettle string, fabric strips and fine rattan to polythene tubing and plastic packaging tape - plus there are instructions on making your own cordage.

The author introduces ways to embellish these structures with found objects, distressed Tyvek, felted tubes, shells, seed heads, wire, paper-knotted tubes and metal tubes.

Each chapter takes the reader through the basics of the construction process with clear step-by-step illustrations and diagrams in addition to samples and stunning finished pieces.
