Rezension:

If any book deserves to be called The Felt Maker s Bible, this is it. White, founder of Magpie Designs Felting Studio (www.magpiefelt.com), pours a rich draught of felt-making information into this manual, covering basic felt-making techniques as well as needle, nuno, cobweb, 3-D, and carved techniques and featuring 46 projects. But what makes this a title of lasting value for libraries is the depth of solid information it offers on the craft and its history, on various artists, and on related topics like setting up a felt-making studio, teaching felt making, and leading community felt-making projects. Highly recommended for large public and academic libraries . "Library Journal", April 15, 2008 (starred) "

Vom Verlag:

Felt making is the magical transformation of a loose pile of wool fibres into a durable, alluring non woven fabric. An ancient process that continues to work its wonder on modern artisans and crafters, felt making produces a flannel-like fabric with a tactile appeal like nothing else. How is this fabric alchemy accomplished? The felt maker adds a little soap and water to the wool, presses the fibres until they tangle together and hold the shape of cloth, and then vigorously works, or fulls, the cloth until it shrinks and strengthens to the desired shape. In "Uniquely Felt", Christine White, a professional teacher and felt maker, gathers her considerable knowledge of the craft to write the comprehensive guide to all things felt. She describes the equipment, explores concepts and theories of felting, and thoroughly covers all felting techniques, including traditional, needle, three dimensional seamless, nuno, cobweb, carved, and Beede ball. And then there are the projects - handsome, indestructible bags; nuno shawls that marry soft wool fibres and wispy silks; bright picnic blankets and plush bath mats; lacy curtains made with impossibly sheer cobweb felt. Every project is striking in its fabulous depth of colour and purity of form. There are no stitches, no seams, and no signs of woven cloth - just a wonderful, flowing piece of textile art. The basic steps of felt making are simple enough to learn in an afternoon, but the infinite possibilities in every new pile of fibre keep enthusiasts fascinated for a lifetime. The process always begins the same way, but the fibres make the felting journey unique every time. This book is the ultimate guide to that magical adventure.
