Mixed Media and Found Materials
The projects of this book include combining fabrics, painting, printing, using wood, wallpapers and metals, to create both fashion garments and 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. The book will also provide pointers for sourcing vintage fabrics and recycled materials as well as other reuseable components.
