Ondulé Textiles: Weaving Contours with a Fan Reed

Author: Norma Smayda

Weaving involves straight, parallel, and gridlike lines, but as Norma Smayda shows, ondulé―weaving with curving warp threads―offers new directions. This is the first book on ondulé textiles, and includes clear information on every aspect, from instructions to design tips to a comprehensive history of the fan reed, the tool that makes ondulé possible. Smayda shares the details of her own learning experiences with numerous ondulé warps in a variety of fibers. More than 180 color photos also feature stunningly beautiful work by five other contemporary and two twentieth-century weavers, plus intriguing historic Japanese textiles. Also included are sections on weft ondulé, designing a fan or hybrid reed, and the thought processes behind twenty-one of the featured projects, including drafts. This reference will serve as foundation and inspiration for your ondulé weaving.

Norma Smayda, master weaver, teacher, and author, established the Saunderstown Weaving School in 1974. Gretchen White is a weaver, knitter, and quilter, with a particular interest in the structure of textiles and knitted fabrics.
