Textile Collage

Using Collage Techniques in Textile Art

Mandy Pattullo


Textile artist and surface designer Mandy Pattullo marries fabric with collage techniques to produce beautiful pieces of art. In Textile Collage she shows a fresh way to use scraps and oddments of fabrics to create something unique and personal, while also being economical – perfect for those who have hoarded bits of fabric, trim and memory-filled domestic textiles over the years. The book chapters include:

  • Materials: collecting and sourcing fabric including unpicking and storing found fabric
  • Make: guides you through all the artistic and creative elements that you need to consider to create a beautiful collage
  • Portray: looks at piecing together a collaged portrait – human or animal – showing the figurative approach in collage work that includes transfer images and using found photographs
  • Worn: collage technique is used to embellish skirts, jackets and accessories
  • Book: looks at the fabric book as a receptacle for textile collage, with a range of approaches and forms explored

This is a wonderful resource for all textilers looking to make the most of the found fabrics they love and fully explore the technique of collage with textiles.
