Description

Tired of the cliches often trotted out about craft, Perri Lewis makes it her task to bring the world of making into the 21st century.

In Material World, Perri enlists the help of luminaries from the worlds of art, craft, design and fashion to share their knowledge and advice. Among these include Rob Ryan, Emma Bridgewater, Grayson Perry, Philip Treacy, Tatty Devine, Topshop and Tracey Emin. Instead of just giving the reader individual projects, you can learn the techniques for crafts such as paper-cutting, dress-making, printing, encrusting, leather work and tailoring. However, if you prefer more guidance, there are 15 projects to make, including decoupage shoes, a patchwork Louis chair and a printed scarf.

With the compiled words of wisdom of these experts, and Perri's own timeless advice, you'll be up and running with scissors in no time.

Review quote

"The combination of artist interviews, ruminations on the reasons for the popularity of crafts, and projects with hipster appeal is a lot of fun . . . readers will enjoy following Lewis down the rabbit hole of craft." --Library Journal
