Claire Wellesley-Smith is a Yorkshire based textile artist and her book shows us how to discover a slow and simpler way to stitch textile art.
She values quality over quantity and brings a meaningful and thoughtful approach to her practice. In this beautiful publication, the author takes inspiration from various textile traditions such as Japanese Boro, Kantha and American patchwork. The book contains ideas for projects such as stitch journals, mapping local walks in stitch and natural dyeing. The author also showcases the work of other textile artists who work in a similar way.
