Special Order
Fresh ideas and techniques for the rapidly evolving area of three-dimensional textiles.

Leading textile artist Ann Goddard takes three-dimensional textiles to a new level in this practical book. Drawing inspiration from natural landscapes, organic material and a concern for the environment, Ann's work combines textile and non/textile elements with construction. Linen, loose fibres, paper and yarn are complemented by seemingly unlikely materials including concrete, wood, lead and bark. Fragile is juxtaposed with hard, natural with man-made, beauty with imperfection. The techniques range from stitching, wrapping, couching, and knotting to sawing, drilling, and casting. In this book, previously separate art media are combined to create eclectic works; boundaries are crossed, expectations challenged and categorisation rejected.

Mixed Media Textile Art in Three Dimensions takes a linear look at the creative process from themes, research and experimentation through to preparing elements, conveying meaning and constructing three-dimensional forms, encouraging you to broaden your horizons in textile work.

Brimming with beautiful artwork from the author and featuring the work of some inspiring and exciting artists creating three-dimensional constructions.
Ann Goddard is a renowned textile artist, part of the prestigious 62 Group, and an MA in Fine Art as well as textile qualifications. Her work straddles the boundary between fine art and craft, and has evolved through her background of studying embroidery, ceramics, and textiles within a fine art context. Most of her work is three dimensional, taking the form of mixed media constructions, assemblages and small installations. She exhibits all over the world, but particularly the UK and Europe.
