About this title


A practical introduction to the techniques of contemporary carpet design

Walking on Art explores contemporary carpet design from a practitioner’s viewpoint, describing through techniques and illustrations Deirdre Dyson’s fourteen-year journey from figurative painter to carpet designer.

A foreword by Professor Sir Christopher Frayling contextualizes Dyson’s award-winning work within discussions about art and design, and then Dyson herself reflects on her long experience of designing exquisite luxury carpets. The chapter “Techniques" introduces the traditional methods that create these carpets including hand knotting, hand tufting, and carving, and how these conventions can be manipulated to create stunning effects. “Process" then explores the steps―from inspiration to making―that lie behind any design. These chapters are followed by colorful illustrations of Dyson’s extensive collections. Here are fanciful butterfly motifs alongside geometric patterns and floral designs, brought together in one stunning collection. 167 illustrations

About the Author:

Deirdre Dyson studied at the Byam Shaw School of Art, and has since exhibited her oil paintings in London and New York. She began designing carpets fourteen years ago, initially for her own home, which she subsequently developed into a successful business. She has a store in London, and in 2013 was the winner of Best Studio Artist Design at the DOMOTEX Carpet Design Awards.
