Every nuance of this art form is carefully described, from traditional weaving and stitching to the less conventional burning and blowtorching. The reader is encouraged to experiment while fostering an appreciation for the properties of transparent materials, from fabrics and felt to film and cellophane. Every step of the art-making process is considered, with chapters devoted to channeling inspiration as well as final construction and presentation. Perhaps best of all, this book veers away from strict or tedious instructions, encouraging a freewheeling and boundless approach to creating your own textile art that is sure to inspire.
