Details: Product Description Tapestry weaving has a fresh new look! With this in-depth technique guide and a small, inexpensive loom, fibre enthusiasts learn to create a range of images with yarn, including funky abstract designs, detailed geometric configurations, and realistic pictures. Put aside those preconceptions of dusty, medieval tapestries hanging on castle walls! Tapestry weaving has a whole new look, and fibre enthusiasts of all levels are eager to try their hand at creating images with yarn. Rebecca Mezoff, a renowned teacher of contemporary tapestry weaving, shares her techniques in this in-depth guide to every aspect of the process, from developing a colour palette to selecting yarn, warping the loom, and weaving the image. Crafters can choose from inexpensive tabletop and hand-held looms to larger floor looms. Detailed step-by-step photos and inspiring examples from a range of weaver-artists make this a one-stop resource for tapestry weaving how-to. AUTHOR: Rebecca Mezoff is the author of The Art of Tapestry Weaving. An award-winning weaver and nationally known teacher of tapestry weaving, she reaches thousands of students annually through her online courses, popular self-styled weaving retreats, and in-person workshops at Penland School of Craft, Convergence, and Red Alder Fiber Arts. Mezoff has been weaving tapestries for 15 years and her articles on the subject have appeared in the American Tapestry Alliance, Spin Off, Handwoven, and Fiber Art Now. Review "It is rare that a book comes along that covers a subject with such depth as this one does. You can tell the author knows her subject deep down, has spent years honing her skills, and is an enthusiastic and generous teacher. The Art of Tapestry Weaving will endure because it is thorough, covers any question a student of tapestry might have, provides in-depth information, and has clear illustrations. It inspires." -- Jane Patrick, creative director, Schacht Spindle Company "The Art of Tapestry Weaving is equal parts passion and precision. The depth and detail Rebecca Mezoff brings to teaching the craft of tapestry weaving guarantees you will need no other book to learn the essential skills. The breadth and joy she brings to teaching the art of tapestry assures the growth of your ability, creativity and excitement at the loom for a long, long time." -- Jillian Moreno, fiber arts teacher, and author of Yarnitecture: A Knitter's Guide to Spinning: Building Exactly the Yarn You Want "With knowledge, common sense, and an encouraging manner, Rebecca intelligently guides us through the process of tapestry weaving. The illustrations in this new "must-have" book will inspire and inform tapestry weavers of all levels. I was especially excited to see the beautiful and informative chapters on yarn choices and color theory -- two areas that, as a weaver, I am constantly considering." -- Susan Iverson,​ president​ of the American Tapestry Alliance​ and professor emerita, Virginia Commonwealth University "Noted educator Rebecca Mezoff wants you to fall in love with tapestry weaving. She walks you through the process, explaining every nuance in precise, clear imagery and language, anticipating any pitfall along the way, so you can have a smooth journey from novice to expert. This book will sit by your loom as friend and mentor; it is destined to be a classic." --Bhakti Ziek, weaving teacher, artist, and writer​ ​ "This book brings to its reader the gentle, easy, and highly informative way of teaching for which Rebecca is well known. Most importantly, nothing is assumed, and technical terms are used only after they have been painlessly explained. I wish I'd had such a book when I was learning tapestry." -- Michael F. Rohde, tapestry artist​ and former president of the American Tapestry Alliance "Oh, how I wish I'd had Rebecca Mezoff's The Art of Tapestry Weaving when I began learning about tapestry over thirty years ago! Back then, I started out on a self-teaching adventur
