about this item

Weaving is back! Create beautiful wall hangings and accessories on a loom, with clear charts and step-by-step instructions.

Laura Strutt has designed 25 contemporary weavings in a range of stylish colorways, from bright neons to pastels, Navajo-inspired earth tones, monochrome, and neutrals, as well as suggesting alternate colors so you can match your makes to your home and your accessories to your mood. With a comprehensive techniques section that covers everything from how to make your own loom, warping (preparing) a loom, basics such as tabby weave, bubbling, Egyptian knots, Soumak weave, basket weave, and many more, you will develop the skills you need to make a wide range of exciting projects, such as a stunning gold and cream wall hanging with extra-long Rya knots, a pastel-colored hanging with ribbons and strips of lace to create a tactile texture, or a pretty phone cover with Aztec-inspired triangles—the only difficult part is choosing what to make first!

Great book for beginners interested in modern weaving - especially modern wall hangings. Lots of easy to follow instructions for all the various warping and weaving techniques. I didn't love every project, but they were a good jumping off point.  see moreof eba01's review
