The Weaving Explorer features a wide variety of techniques, weave structures, and weaving materials that will excite all levels of crafters. Many of the 30 featured projects combine traditional methods with non-traditional materials to create woven items inspired by a classic approach but updated with a contemporary look. Some projects require no loom at all, while others use a basic frame to hold the threads together, and still others are woven around an object, such as a stone, branch, or ring, that remains part of the completed item. The book guides weavers through working with a range of materials, from paper, ribbon, fabric strips, and yarns to wire, plastic, stones, and wood. Examples of beautiful finished pieces showcase each technique and will inspire readers to imagine their own creative weaving possibilities.
