Mixed-Media and Found Materials Summary

Mixed-Media and Found Materials by Lucy Renshaw

This book is all about experimenting with as many different colours, textures and materials as you can lay your hands on. Projects include combining fabrics, painting, printing, using wood, wallpapers and metals, to create both fashion garments and gorgeous one-off pieces for interiors. Readers will learn how to apply and adapt basic and more advanced techniques to such projects as making a fashion garment or accessory, or recovering chairs or old lampshades. This book will inspire enthusiastic beginners with limited textile skills as well as engaging more experienced makers looking for new inspiration and techniques. The book will also provide useful pointers for sourcing vintage fabrics and recycled materials as well as other reuseable components.
