Showcasing stunning work that blends jewellery, sculpture, and clothing, Textile Techniques in Metal is the first and only comprehensive book on the innovative intersection of the fibre and metal arts.
This richly illustrated book explains, in easy-to-follow language, a variety of methods and strategies for manipulating metals with techniques borrowed from textiles.
The author provides detailed instructions for adapting techniques like knitting, crocheting, weaving, basketry, braiding and lacemaking.
With insightful historical information and numerous inspiring examples of work by the author and other talented artists, Textile Techniques in Metal will serve as an eye-opening reference for textile artists, sculptors, and jewellers alike.
