Weaving Textiles That Shape Themselves
Author: Ann Richards
Weaving Textiles That Shape Themselves sounds like a contradiction in terms, but this book sets out to show how textiles can do precisely that: shape themselves. Weaving with high-twist yarns and contrasting materials can create fabrics with lively textures and elastic properties. Although these fabrics are flat on the loom, they are transformed by washing - water releases the energy of the different yarns and the fabrics 'organize themselves' into crinkled or pleated textures.
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.
