Embroidering the Everyday: Found, Stitch and Paint (Hardback)Cas Holmes (author)
- In stock
Our connection to the 'everyday'and the 'domestic' provides a wealth of inspiration and continues to inform the creative processes of artist Cas Holmes. Resourcefulness and 'making do' using materials and subjects available to hand, results in lyrical works connected to time and place.
Working as a 'nomad at home', Cas invites us to re-examine the world and use the limitations sometimes imposed by geographic area or individual circumstances as a rich resource to develop ideas for mixed media textiles in a more thoughtful way. Leading practitioners in textile art today will demonstrate practical projects. Chapters include:'Kitchen cupboards', which features prints with teaboxes, stains with tea, stitch a teabag; Window views; sustainable stitch (using newspapers, and machine stitch letters); textiles inspired by local walks.
