Textile artists and embroiderers have long been interested in creating three-dimensional structures in the form of bags and boxes, but many are now constructing more advanced geometric shapes and free-form embroidered pieces. The added third dimension of depth offers endless scope for design and can be much more exciting and challenging than flat, two-dimensional work. In this book, Janet Edmonds explores the textile design processes and building methods that take the image off the drawing board and into three-dimensions. Whether working with the discipline of geometric shapes or with the freedom of free-form construction, Janet Edmonds show how textile artists and embroiderers can build and shape three-dimensional structures and combine them with decorative surfaces. Richly illustrated, with stunning colour photographs of finished pieces, diagrams and drawings, this is the first book to cover three-dimensional textiles in detail and it comes from the leading authority on the subject. Topics covered include: Design; Materials and equipment; Constructing with flat pieces; Continuous lengths; Manipulated methods; Beads; Finishing Techniques.

Appliqué is a classic embroidery technique that has recently been experiencing a revival. Appearing in the most cutting-edge contemporary textile work, it can be interpreted in many different ways – layering, patching, applying, overlaying – and offers endless creative possibilities. Each technical variation of appliqué has traditionally had its own set boundaries, but nowadays all the rules are being broken and the technique has become relevant, up-to-date and suitable for all varieties of textile art. This impressive book takes a fresh look at the world of appliqué and surface embellishment, showing you how to develop distinctive and individual designs, create exciting compositions and use unusual combinations of materials. It covers the traditional variations, including bonded appliqué, broderie perse, cut-away appliqué and Mola work, and explains how the standard techniques can be developed to give exciting results in your own textile work, in both hand and machine embroidery. Accompanying the techniques is a wealth of examples of contemporary appliqué to inspire you. The authors are renowned for their thoughtful, creative but practical approach to teaching textiles, making this book suitable for beginners and established textile artists alike.

Focusing on the intersections between textiles and architectural design, this title communicates the full range of possibilities for a multidisciplinary design hybrid. It examines the generative concepts, forms, patterns, materials, processes, technologies and practices that are driving this cross-fertilisation in contemporary urban and architectural design. Architextiles represent a transition stage in the reorientation of spatial design towards a more networked, dynamic, interactive, communicative and multifunctional state. The paradigms of fashion and textile design, with their unique, accelerated aesthetics and ability to embody a burgeoning, composite and complex range of properties such as lightness, flow, flexibility, surface, complexity and movement have a natural affinity with architecture's shifts towards a more liquid state. The preoccupation with textiles in architecture challenges traditional perceptions and practices in interior, architectural, urban, textile and fashion design. Interweaving new designs and speculative projects for the future, Architextiles, brings together architects, designers, engineers, technologists, theorists and materials researchers to unravel these new methodologies of fabricating space.
