Modern Weaving by Laura Strutt
The perfect guide to weaving for beginners. Create beautiful wall hangings and accessories on a loom, with clear charts and step-by step instructions.
Laura Strutt has designed 25 contemporary weavings in a range of stylish colourways, from bright neons to pastels, Navajo-inspired earth tones, monochrome and neutrals, as well as suggesting alternate colours so you can match your makes to your home and your accessories to your mood. With a comprehensive techniques section that covers everything from how to make your own loom, warping (preparing) a loom, basics such as tabby weave, bubbling, Egyptian knots, Soumak weave, basket weave and many more, you will develop the skills you need to make a wide range of exciting projects, such as a stunning gold and cream wall hanging with extra-long Rya knots, a pastel-coloured hanging with ribbons and strips of lace to create a tactile texture, or a pretty phone cover with Aztec-inspired triangles. The only difficult part is choosing what to make first!
