Rigid-heddle weaving is a simple technique to learn and master but offers a lifetime of possibilities to discover. Covering all the basics—from how to select a loom to initial setup and starting techniques—Weaving Large on a Little Loom also introduces a wide variety of techniques. Beginners will be excited by the range of projects they can do, while more experienced weavers will be surprised and delighted by the author's exploration of tapestry, warp-face patterning, weft-pile weaving, weaving with fine threads, woven shibori, shadow weave, and creating textural effects by experimenting with different types of yarn and even weaving with wire and conductive thread.
