If there is a forever art it must be weaving, even the birds know about it! Because weaving uses materials collected from nature, it replies to the needs of our epoch, it replies to our need for creation but without destroying our environment. To become a good weaver one needs to understand the materials used, to educate one’s hands that they be more able, to practice to acquire experience and to never concede to short cuts. But the weaver soon finds that it is the pleasure of weaving, of making the materials dance in the hands, that is the real pleasure of weaving. This book is a complete guide to introduce the reader to the basics of weaving as well as some more difficult techniques. To accompany this process, the descriptions and illustrations are clear and the methods practical to allow the creation of traditional and original designs.
