Book Review: Textile Design Theory in the Making

Press/Media: Research cited

Description

"To say that this book has been a force for positive change in my weaving practice would be an understatement.

I am grateful for Prof Igoe’s honesty in her research and exploration of how we think about how we think about creating textiles and for providing answers to questions I didn’t know I needed to ask.  (And that bit in italics is not a typo - stop and think about it for a minute.)

The book has an extensive glossary (much appreciated as some of the terms were new to me) and a lengthy bibliography for those who want to dive further into the literature.  The index is thorough and helpful to cross reference topics.

For a fresh look at designing textiles, this book might be the door through to a new way of thinking about textiles and how to design them for others as well."
