Highly textured objects such as plaited paper baskets, woven lanterns, small hearth rugs, and cork tables are featured in this beginner’s guide to non-loom weaving. The easy instructions teach ancient techniques such as braiding, stringing, and knotting–and call for everyday materials such as copper tape, plastic sheeting, paper yarn, and granite tiles–to produce stunning contemporary designs for the home. A short essay about natural materials and the creative process introduces each project, and lovely photographs showcase the final results: sleek window hangings, stick-and-string coasters, pillows covered in canvas tape, and woven paper cards. A list of resources, an assortment of weaving tips, and suggestions for further reading are included.
