In this visually stunning book, Moy Mackay reveals how you too can create beautiful pictures using felt. Characterised by her wonderful use of colour, Moys work is breathtaking and includes still-lifes, animals and landscapes inspired by the dramatic scenery of the Scottish Borders where she lives and works.
Moy takes you through every step of the process, including the materials and tools you need, the feltmaking process itself (which is easier than youd imagine), and how to put together four fabulous felt paintings of your own. There is guidance on stitching, including both hand- and machine-stitching, as well as how to use colour and introduce texture in the form of different fibres and threads.
There are numerous examples of Moys work through the book, and by the end you will not fail to be inspired to create gorgeous felt paintings of your own. "Moy's passionate use of colour and the deep texture created by felting are what draw me to her work. I also like the way that she concentrates on her surroundings for her subject matter her work is very free."- Kaffe Fassett.
Author Bio - Since graduating from the Glasgow School of Art in 1990 with a BA (Hons) degree in Design specialising in printed textiles, Moy Mackay has gone on to develop an innovative felting style using merino fleece fibres in the same way that a painter uses brushstrokes, then embellishing them with machine and hand embroidery. She has exhibited her work at numerous exhibitions throughout the UK and also in the US, and she has built up a steadily increasing fan base. Moy works from Wasps Artist's Studios in Selkirk as well as running The Moy Mackay Gallery in Peebles. Since her first book Art in Felt & Stitch was published in April 2012, Moy's work has gained worldwide exposure and she now teaches classes both at home and abroad. In 2013 she won Silver in the category of Textiles and Needlecraft, judged by Kaffe Fassett at the British Craft & Design Selected Awards. http://www.moymackaygallery.com/
