Book Spotlight: Tapestry Weaving

Tapestry Weaving by Kirsten Glasbrook
Tapestry Weaving by Kirsten Glasbrook
 Kirsten Glasbrook's colourful and exciting book 'Tapestry Weaving' will appeal to all lovers of colour and texture.

The various techniques of tapestry weaving are explored through Kirsten's evocative designs and the step-by-step guidance and detailed photographs teach the weaver how to create motifs, borders, and shading, as well as finishing techniques such as tassels and beading.

Weaving a tapestry is like painting with yarn and the inspiring gallery of Kirsten's work shows the versatility of the craft. 

Excerpt from Tapestry Weaving by Kirsten Glasbrook
This excerpt from the book illustrates how a design can be 'traced' onto the warp threads and interpreted with the coloured rug yarn.

Weaving is a lot of fun, it's another way to use your time wisely. Anyway, I started weaving when I was in high school and I can say that I'm a bad weaver probably because I never practice. I think I must get one book for me.
