Art in Felt & Stitch by Moy Mackay
In this visually stunning book, Moy Mackay reveals how you too can create beautiful pictures using felt.
Moy's unique and vibrant 'felt paintings' are created by replacing paint as a medium with fleece, fibres and threads, and combining traditional felting techniques with fine art. The result is an exquisite fusion of art, felt and stitch that is both uplifting and inspiring.
Characterised by her wonderful use of colour, her work includes landscapes, as well as still-life studies, animals, birds and flowers.
There are clear step-by-step guidance through all of the basic techniques, including the felting process itself, and how to use machine and hand embroidery stitching to create form and texture.
There are numerous examples of Moy's work through the book, and by the end you will not fail to be inspired to create gorgeous felt paintings of your own.
