The Eco Weaving Kit is designed for beginners and more experienced weavers alike; someone at any stage of their weaving journey will appreciate the artisan-made loom and bobbin, luxurious plant dyed organic cotton yarns and handmade organic cotton carry bag. But I suspect that the part that beginners might appreciate the most is the 19 page beginner’s weaving guide that is included.
I developed ‘Modern Weaving Using Traditional Techniques’ for my full day workshop of the same name. In this workshop I take participants through the tools, terminology and troubleshooting of tapestry weaving, choosing appropriate materials to weave with, show them how to set up their weaving, teach them basic and some intermediate tapestry weaving techniques as well as how to finish and hang their weaving. I share with them the tips and tricks that I have learned over the years (that you don’t find out on blogs or Pinterest!).
The guide gives the instructions that I give in the workshop, with full colour, step by step photos. My aim was to provide a comprehensive guide that would allow people who learn better by reading (rather than listening or watching) to get a better grasp on the workshop content, as well as allow everyone to refer to the guide along the way, both in the workshop and when they are weaving at home. I don’t want to leave anyone guessing about how to warp their loom, tie a complex knot or keep their weaving straight, for example.
This detailed guide, which took months of preparation, weaving, photographing and editing, is included in the Eco Weaving Kit.
