Textiles Re:imagined will take you on a journey of discovery as you share in the stories of 50 diverse artists, all of whom demonstrate excellence in workmanship and design. This is your "behind the scenes" pass into how the artists got to where they are today, what inspires them and the processes they use to create their breathtakingly beautiful work. Immerse yourself in a world of possibility within the realm of textile and fiber art and embrace the freedom to explore new concepts and ideas.
In compiling this book for you and other passionate, creative people just like you, we sought to challenge preconceptions about what constitutes ‘textile art’. The work of the 50 featured artists honours tradition in many cases, but is always innovative, exciting and contemporary. By covering such a wide and varied range of materials and techniques (including embroidery, sculpture, basketry, beading, printing, dyeing, weaving and much more), our aim is that you’ll be inspired to experiment and push the boundaries of your own practice.
And of course, as fiber art is a visual medium there’s a huge array of sumptuously vibrant images of the artists’ work to stimulate you further.
