Publisher's Comments
Four-shaft and eight-shaft weaving projects designed to introduce you to fundamental weaving techniques, from a master weaver, the late Anne Field.

Internationally acclaimed master weaver the late Anne Field taught and demonstrated basic and advanced weaving techniques for over 25 years. While most beginner books describe various weaving techniques in detail and only later, if at all, give examples of how they can be used, Anne found that people learn best when they can start making things right away; her book takes a project-based approach, where beginners learn by doing, with each technique introduced by means of a straightforward, easy-to-work weaving design. Each project is described in detail, with photographs showing both the finished work and every step along the way.

The book includes:

  • Projects for four-shaft looms, with several eight-shaft projects also included, plus a discussion of table looms
  • Introductory chapters covering how to choose the right style of loom for you, and how to set up your loom for weaving
  • The projects themselves: table runners, table mats, wraps, scarfs, creating fabric for a vest and jacket, cushions, wall hangings and rugs
  • A variety of fibers, from the traditional yarns of wool and cotton to Tencel and bamboo, plus a section covering the use of computers in modern weaving
