'The concepts, sentences and ideas were very clear and written in a student friendly way ... very good illustrations which are very appropriate and quite exciting. The case studies and interviews are excellent, giving students a broad look at the different aspects of textiles, also some really good quotes. One particular strength is the fact that the authors and interviewees all continually reiterate the value of drawing and solid research ... I did feel like picking up my sketchbook and starting to draw many times whilst reading.'

'This is a wonderful textbook to be used as a springboard for design. I intend to use this as an additional text for the course I am teaching now. I am also developing a new course for which I intend to use this as the primary textbook.'
Teena Jennings-Rentenaar, The University of Akron, USA
'Useful and inspirational guide to textile design, outlining the importance of primary research as the key important first stage of the design process. Targeted well for first year students to introduce them to the fundamentals of sourcing and utilising visual information, through years two and three as visual and mental prompts and reminders of the value of developing wide-ranging research techniques. The practical exercises are also useful in allowing students to evaluate their progress and the visuals provide the necessary stimulus to encourage more mixed media sketchbook work, always welcome. All in all an inspirational workbook.'
Sue Riley, Basingstoke College of Technology, UK.
This is a great handbook. I like its clear layout and its brightly illustrated pages where different stages of textile design are clearly identified and explained. This book mixes very specific tasks and useful tips with introductory sessions on well-known designers. This book will without a doubt inform readers and future designers that designing for textiles needs thought and time, and that it is process ba

We have included it on the recommended reading list for the first year students of our BA (Hons) Contemporary Textiles course at Shetland College UHI, and are encouraging all art students who need to lively up their visual studies to read it.
The authors encourage an expansive approach to visual research and I particularly like the inclusion of inspirational quotes, for example from Edward de Bono "it is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong, than to be always right by having no ideas at all". (pg. 75)
The book promotes the use of a diverse range of sources for information gathering in conjunction with the internet, understanding "it is the textile designer's ability to seek out design potential from everyday surroundings that makes them special" (pg40). When the book is re printed it would be good to see a cautionary note added on the importance of accurate referencing of images and information from the internet and books, a requirement that students often ignore.
The authors have taken care to include a broad range of practitioners which represent the expanded roles within textile and surface pattern design today, from the freelance illustrator Joanna Baseford to artist Yinko Shonibare whose intelligent use of textiles to symbolise cultural, racial and sociological meaning creates works with richness and depth. Photographs of makers convey their fascinating studio environments and the interviews are packed with hard won and wise advice; Tim Gresham, woven tapestry designer and photographer, remarks on the importance of knowing where you are going with your work and "Also to realize that sometimes that direction has to change, and even a small change can be quite significant" (pg133)
The illustration of change and transmutation of materials and images through dynamic approaches to drawing will be the books most lasting value to our students from the really useful prompts and exercises to extend ideas in mixed media.
