It's a growing trend: textile artists eager to stitch together a community as well as a project. Cas Holmes and Anne Kelly, who formed their own productive partnership, explain the art of creative collaboration whether in small groups or large, with a neighbor or someone far away. They provide advice on finding colleagues, choosing venues, and setting ground rules, plus a wealth of ways to work together, swap pieces, develop variations on a theme, and even make joint creations via mail or the Internet. This thought-provoking, inspirational book will help you connect with other textile artists and take your own work beyond the personal.
Cas Holmes is one of the UK's most renowned textile artists, and the author of The Found Object in Textile Art. In addition to exhibiting widely and runin courses at West Dean College, she has written for magazines, including The Quilter, and contributed to Workshop on the Web. Cas lives in Maidstone, Kent.
