The Art of Weaving

Author: Else Regensteiner

The Art of Weaving is an indispensable handbook for every weaver, beginner and expert. Included here are not only the fundamentals of weaving--essential information about looms and other equipment, yarns, how to design a warp and warp the loom, drafting, the basic weaves, and pattern weaves--but also how to apply this knowledge to discover the many faces of weaving. Many different weave structures are covered: double weaves; tapestry techniques; knotted pile, and flat-woven rugs; and two- and three-dimensional wall hangings.

This book not only teaches the techniques, simple and complex, of weaving; it stimulates creative expression. An entire chapter is devoted to design--composition, color, form and function, the sources of inspiration.

Every weaver will appreciate, too, these special features of The Art of Weaving: how to make and weave with a back-strap loom, how to estimate yardage for warp and weft, how to convert rising-shed loom directions for use with a sinking shed; how to read any draft, and a comprehensive glossary of the weaver's language.

With many diagrams and drafts and over 200 black-and-white and color photographs of the finest contemporary weaving.
