While most beginner books describe the different weaving techniques and then give examples of how they can be used, internationally acclaimed masterweaver Anne Field’s latest book takes a project-based approach, where beginners learn the techniques through actually doing a weaving project. Initial chapters discuss choosing a loom and how to set it up and then it is straight into the projects, which include table runners, table mats, wraps, scarves, fabric for a vest and jacket, cushions, wall hangings, and rugs. Each project is described in detail, with photographs showing the finished work, as well as the various steps in getting there. The book focuses on shaft looms only, with most projects woven on four-shaft looms, using yarns such as wool, cotton, Tencel, and bamboo.
