Claire Wellesley-Smith is a textile artist living and working in Yorkshire. This book follows on from her previous book Slow Stitch.
The author considers the importance of connection and ideas around wellbeing when using textiles for individuals and communities. The book includes practical ideas around thinking-through making’, using resonant’ materials and extending the life of pieces using traditional and non-traditional methods.
Contemporary textile artists using these themes in their work feature alongside personal work from Claire and examples from community-based textile projects. The book features some of the very best textile artists, such as esteemed American fibre artists and the doyenne of textiles, Alice Kettle.
