Bring the rhythms of nature into your craft! More and more textile artists are using natural processes in their work, from dyeing with rust to incorporating found and scavenged items. This is the first book dedicated to this popular topic, with advice on how to work creatively with what's close at hand. Bury your embroidery to give it a patina, make sun prints with found objects, and do "beachcombing weaving." These projects, along with examples from the best contemporary artists, show respect for the environment, and capture a strong sense of place, calm, and contentment.

A beach comber's delight! She has one section she calls Gifts from the Pavement - so not just beaches!

Not for the average fibre artist! Good explanations and photos if you like rusty brown and found objects. Personally, I only glanced through it.
