One of the world's leading textile artists provides inspiration and techniques for incorporating found objects into your work.

Cas Holmes is renowned for her use of the found object, and her many-layered, atmospheric pieces have been exhibited internationally. In this illuminating volume, she explains how to go about obtaining these items, how to work with them, and how to create surfaces. See how to do mark-making with nontraditional coloring media such as beetroot; knead paper, in a process known as momigami; stitch fabric to form three-dimensional shapes; turn mundane items like bottle caps into brooches; and add meaning to your art by incorporating personal memorabilia. Suggested projects range from simple journals to unusual frames, and you'll find a wealth of techniques and inspiration, all illustrated with examples from the world's best textile art.
