Overview

Highly textured objects such as plaited paper baskets, woven lanterns, small hearth rugs, and cork tables are featured in this beginner's guide to nonloom weaving. The easy instructions teach ancient techniques such as braiding, stringing, and knotting—and call for everyday materials such as copper tape, plastic sheeting, paper yarn, and granite tiles—to produce stunning contemporary designs for the home. A short essay about natural materials and the creative process introduces each project, and lovely photographs showcase the final results: sleek window hangings, stick-and-string coasters, pillows covered in canvas tape, and woven paper cards. A list of resources, an assortment of weaving tips, and suggestions for further reading are included.

This book is filled with fun, decorative projects that incorporate various, simple techniques of weaving and braiding and using a wide range of materials...paper, cork, floor mats, string, etc. It would be a good book to use to teach older children and adults how to weave using various materials. The directions are clear and the photographs many. I recommend this book.
