About this product
- DescriptionIn this visually stunning book, Moy Mackay reveals how you too can create beautiful pictures using felt. Characterised by her wonderful use of colour, Moy's work is breathtaking and includes still-lifes, animals and landscapes inspired by the dramatic scenery of the Scottish Borders where she lives and works. Moy takes you through every step of the process, including the materials and tools you need, the feltmaking process itself (which is easier than you'd imagine), and how to put together four fabulous felt paintings of your own. There is guidance on stitching, including both hand- and machine-stitching, as well as how to use colour and introduce texture in the form of different fibres and threads. There are numerous examples of Moy's work through the book, and by the end you will t fail to be inspired to create gorgeous felt paintings of your own.
- Author BiographyMoy Mackay was born in Edinburgh in 1966. Since graduating from Glasgow School of Art with a BA (Hons) degree in Design, she has lived and worked as a full-time artist in the beautiful Scottish Borders, which are the main source of inspiration for her work. Moy's 'paintings' are created by replacing paint, as a medium, with merino, and combine traditional felting techniques with a fine art application. By using this medium in this way, she has created a very personal and innovative approach to visual expression. Moy exhibits her work at galleries throughout the UK and, recently, in the USA.
