This is the third book from international stitched textile artist and teacher Sandra Meech. In Connecting Art to Stitch , fine art skills and materials are explored through a structured series of short exercises that are specially designed to increase confidence and unlock creativity. Then the connection is made with fabrics, and stitched textile disciplines. 15 Art Classes feature simple sketching, working with acrylics to mixed media approaches, that include collage, painting on fabric, working with disperse transfer dyes, photography, and image transfer and will re-enforce how art and design translates into stitched textiles. Different subjects are suggested throughout, so exercises can be repeated again and again, as a personal theme is developed. Sewing techniques and stitch applications are reviewed and illustrated with stunning examples by the author and other leading textile artists. At all times the connection from art to stitch will be made, making this important link between contemporary art and creative stitched textiles.
