Renowned quilter and textile artist Helen Parrott explores the creative potential of using your local surroundings to create beautiful textile artworks.

Drawing on the Slow Stitch movement, Helen Parrott explains how mark-making--using stitches to make marks on fabric as you develop your design--can be used meditatively through the year to record variations in color, energy, and light. She encourages you to connect your own locality and its specific aspects to create a personal cycle of textile art that captures everything from summer's sunny brightness to winter snow. Each seasonal section begins with an observational walk, followed by an exploratory paper, working samples, and completed art. Find out how to be in tune with your environment, from equinox to solstice, and record seasonal characteristics. Along with techniques and projects, this inspirational book showcases finished works from Helen's exhibitions, as well as from the Bradford Textile Archive, to reveal a range of creative possibilities.
