Weaving lies at the border of art and craft and in On the Loom, Maryanne Moodie brings the ancient art of weaving to the modern day in a comprehensive guide packed with step-by-step tutorials and beautiful photography.
Split by loom type—circular, rectangular, and even found objects—24 lush, bohemian, and uniquely modern projects for the home and to wear draw deeply on the nostalgic quality of vintage textiles.
We've excerpted 3 sample textile projects from On the Loom so you can add a handmade touch to your home this fall:
- Fringed Place Mats: This perfect place setting makes a warm, inviting dinner party. With a cardboard loom and neutral yarn, you can personalize your dining room.
2. Wrapped Lampshade: Give any room a warm glow with a textile-wrapped lampshade.
3. Wall Hanging: Use T-shirt yarn, muslin, and scraps of leftover fabrics to create a unique focal point in your room.
Learn how to weave these projects and many, many more by purchasing a copy of On the Loom or attending a class with Maryanne Moodie.
