Weave This is a stylish introduction to weaving. Using a range of creative colorways from vibrant neons to Navajo-inspired prints, Francesca Kletz and Brooke Dennis will teach a whole host of loom weaving techniques. Chapters include how to warp (prepare your loom), create tassels, macrame, bubbling, basket weave, and more. The book focuses on handheld tapestry looms, which can be made out of anything from an old wooden frame, to sticks, to cardboard - so simple to make yourself. Projects are more contemporary than your average craft book - you'll learn how to make eclectic tapestry wall hangings, lampshades, bags, baskets, frames, rugs, charms, accessories - there's loads you can do! Decorate your home with a Mondrian-inspired wall hanging or channel the 80s with a Space Invaders design.
All the designs can be customized so once you've learned the basics, there's an unbelievable range of weaving creations waiting to be discovered.
