Strange Material

Storytelling Through Textiles
Leanne Prain

Description

Strange Material showcases crafters who take storytelling off the page and into the mediums of batik, stitching, dyeing, fabric painting, knitting, crochet and weaving, creating objects that bear their messages proudly, from personal memoir and cultural fables to pictorial histories and wearable fictions.

The book includes chapters on various aspects of textile storytelling, from Textiles of Protest, Politics and Power to The Fabric of Remembrance. It also includes specific projects, such as the well-known and profoundly moving Names Project AIDS Memorial Quilt, as well as poetry mittens, button blankets and stitched travel diaries.

Offbeat, poetic and subversive, Strange Material will inspire readers to re-imagine the possibilities of creating through needle and fabric.
