Creators, Rebels, & Innovators in Textile

The author unpicks the threads that link female textile artists and the arts they produce, revealing a global and historic patchwork of assorted roles, identities and representations. Entertaining as well as informative, this book offers a unique overview of female-centric textile art production including embroidery, weaving, soft sculpture and more.

Tells us:

How knitting became a spying device in wartime

Why dress design was so important for the Suffragettes

Why women and their textile arts were entangled in a web of global mythology

How women’s arts and crafts moved from the backroom to the gallery showroom

Includes over 20 interviews with contemporary textile artists, providing fascinating insights into their practices, themes and personal motivation.
