This book contains all the information a beginner will need to get started - including tips on dyeing in small spaces and a guide to all the health and safety considerations - but is also packed with innovative techniques and inspiring designs that will appeal to the experienced textile artist too.
The book is broken into three sections. The first shows you all the key stitch-resist techniques you need - from the basics right through to creating intricate designs ? and all are clearly explained with photography and illustrations.

The second section shows you how to use motifs to create pattern: learn how to create and position designs, including traditional arrangements such as Karamatsu and Tatewaku, create composite designs and get tips on how to plan your own patterns.
Finally, the book contains a complete guide to dyeing ? it contains recipes, tips and advice so that you can get the very best from every dye bath you make. Learn how to dye with both natural and synthetic indigo, in organic and synthetic vats.
