9781849941495: Felt to Stitch: Creative Felting for Textile Artists

Versatile and easy to make, felt provides an ideal base for surface embellishment. This inspirational guide explores the possibilities, from creating felt from scratch to selecting unusual dye combinations and producing three-dimensional pieces. Using the sample projects that illustrate the main techniques, both beginning and advanced fiber artists will soon be experimenting with color, line, shape, pattern, and texture. Special sections on Japanese Shibori (knotting and dyeing the surface) and Nuno (combining felt with other materials to create rich and interesting fabric surfaces) make this a must-have for all fiber artists.

Book Description PAVILION BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. In Felt to Stitch, acclaimed feltmaker Sheila Smith explores the possibilities of making and using handmade felt for stitch. Felt is an incredibly versatile medium that is easy to make and manipulate and provides the ideal base for surface embellishment. Handmade felt allows you a degree of control and creativity that ready-made fabrics cannot replicate. This book shows you how to make your own felt, select and dye your own colours, build unusual textures with felt fibres and further embellishment, and manipulate the felt to produce three- dimensional pieces. With sample projects that illustrate the main techniques, Felt to Stitch addresses the main elements of design in felt: Colour: blending commercially dyed fibres; dyeing processes for wool fibres; applying colour as surface designLine and shape: methods for creating clear outlines in felt; pre-felts for use on inlay, applique and mosaic.Texture: combining felt and fabric - Nuno felt; embellishing with other fibres. Form/three-dimensional felt: seamless hollow forms.Other techniques: multi-layered felts; low relief; and webs/grids. This is an essential book in the library of any textile artist.
