The ancient craft of weaving has long been recognised for its humble, practical beauty and meditative qualities: while creating gorgeous decorative projects for your home, you can also reflect and relax through the repeating motions of yarn winding over the loom.
Rediscover this traditional craft and enkindle your hidden weaving skills by immersing yourself in the wonderful world of Elena Vilar, professional weaver and beloved French blogger known as Deer Jane. By following her gentle and easy-to-follow instructions, learn how to create 15 woven masterpieces with a modern twist.
Follow the richly illustrated techniques section at the beginning of the book to master the basics before you delve into Elena's simple yet sophisticated designs. Discover how to make a cardboard loom, thread a shop-bought loom, dye wool using natural dyes, make homemade jersey yarn, wind pompoms and more.
Learn the essential weaving methods through each project, starting with a simple, beautiful wall hanging in the basic stitch through to a dream catcher made with braids, soumak and rya knots, and create unique and beautiful designs by incorporating a range of materials, fabrics and imaginative embellishments. In addition, each project includes handy tips and advice to help and inspire you on your weaving journey.
