Practical Weaving Techniques is a practical and inspirational book, perfect for beginners who want to acquire the techniques of this traditional and ancient craft.

Step-by-step instructions demonstrate how to weave on a frame loom, change colours, master curves and try out interlocking (to create intricate patterns such as tartans). There is then advice on how to take it further: weave pictures, design compositions, incorporate found objects, and construct simple looms.

Another in our popular 'Practical' series, this book is written by an experienced weaving teacher and contains everything you need to know to weave beautiful objects, from wall tapestries to 'weavelets', and rugs, to purses and bags.

Ross, an expert weaving instructor with numerous years of experience, brings her knowledge of the art of hand weaving to a wider audience in her first book. Ross has tremendous respect for her craft's rich history, and the photographs are beautiful. Library Journal Those who like to weave small and large pictures will get plenty of suggestions from this book. -- Christine Laubli TFT [Bloomsbury Translation]
