Overview


This book follows the creative process of designing and printing textile patterns, from the initial sourcing of ideas to the final high-quality creation. It provides ideas and practical information at a level easily accessible to textile students and designers, but also to novices who would like to learn more. Throughout, the text is enhanced by an exciting range of images, from historical surface-pattern designs and textiles to the work of contemporary designers. Topics include advice on generating ideas and expressing them visually; a cultural and historical background to surface-pattern design; experimental methods of working from paper onto fabric; and practical details on fabrics, equipment, and techniques for dying and printing. June Fish teaches at London’s Central St. Martins College for Art and Design.
