Technically, weaving with DIY looms,
This review is from: Weaving without a Loom (Paperback)
A brilliant book of ideas and techniques for weaving techniques NOT (technically) without a loom, but actually with handmade, re-purposed looms. The creative possibilities are endless! Beginning with simple paperweaving, stickweaving, and weaving on card, an easy no-sew method for making a bag is described, along with basic tapestry (picture) weaving techniques. In addition, there are suggestions for weaving on an embroidery hoop or rings, to make dreamcatchers (etc), and the most loom-like of all, weaving on a picture frame. As an introduction to creative weaving, this is fantastic value. There are lots of ideas suitable for use in a classroom, but there are also lots of general and creative crafting possibilities opened up. A gallery of inspiration shows what a wide and wonderful array of results can be achieved with the basic techniques presented here.
