Marketplace Product

The hugely accomplished textile artist Jean Draper gives an invaluable guide to designing and working with pattern in textile art. As she did in her successful book Stitch and Structure, she guides you through some of the most creative ways of working up patterns, harnessing our love for rhythm and repetition in our fabrics.

The author covers Natural Pattern, from butterflies, shells and snakes to nature’s patterns to intimidate, pattern with structure and the importance of scale, tone and colour. It includes an extended study of pattern and stitched designs developed from a shell. Chapter 3 covers Pattern from Other Cultures, and the benefits of not relying on measurement but trusting the eye and intuition. It features a study of using Banjara stitched textiles as inspiration. In Chapter 4, Pattern from Embroidery Stitches, the author looks at stitch shapes, putting stitches together to form patterns, exaggerating and overlapping stitches, and using one stitch only. There is a beautiful extended study of the pattern possibilities with Japanese darning. In Man-Made Pattern section, you can learn from other art forms and design styles.

She brings together all these factors to find inspiration, design focus and technique to develop truly great textile art.
