HAND WEAVING

An Introduction to Weaving on 2,3, and 4 Harnesses

Written by Mad Duchemin

 

Vintage hardcover copy of Hand Weaving: An Introduction to 2,3 and 4 Harnesses. This beautifully illustrated and clearly written manual on hand weaving is of the utmost value for the beginner, who might think of weaving as a craft too complicated to attempt. Here it is made into a simple step-by-step process that clarifies and teaches the principles on which all hand weaving is based. Beginning with an explanation of various types of looms - rising and sinking shed, counterbalanced and countermarch looms - the book goes on to explain, with easy-to-follow details and diagrams, how to prepare the warp and enter it in the loom, how to wind bobbins, how to tie up for treadling, and how to treadle and beat the warp effectively.
