In this visually stunning first book, Art in Felt & Stitch, Moy Mackay reveals how you too can create beautiful pictures using felt.
Characterised by her wonderful use of colour, Moy’s 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 will need, the feltmaking process itself, 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 Moy’s work through the book, and by the end you will not fail to be inspired to create gorgeous felt paintings of your own.
The book has been reprinted three times in its first year of publication and has also been published in Russian, French and Italian.
Moy’s second book Flowers in Felt & Stitch was published in November 2014 and has recently been published in Russian.
