Strange Material
By

Rating
Strange Material investigates how, through the act of weaving and sewing, artists have redefined textiles as more than merely functional objects. Quilts, blankets and articles of clothing have all been appropriated by artists to tell stories. This book showcases crafters who take storytelling off the page and into the mediums of batik, stitching, dyeing, fabric painting, knitting, crochet and weaving. They create objects that bear their messages proudly, from personal memoir and cultural fables, to family history and even dream sequences. In full colour throughout.
