Anne Field found that beginners learn best when they can start making things right away. So this book takes a project-based approach, where you will learn techniques through actually doing a weaving project.
Anne Field was an internationally-renowned weaver and spinner who taught, lectured and exhibited around the world. In 2001, she became the first hand weaver to be made a fellow of the Textile Institute, UK. Anne had over fifty years' weaving and spinning experience, and wrote a number of books on the subjects, including Learn to Spin with Anne Field (2011), Spinning Wool: Beyond the Basics (2011), and Collapse Weave: Creating Three-Dimensional Cloth (2008).
This is a project-based book for beginners that is excellently
illustrated throughout with good Contents and Index. ... As a
beginner weaver, this reviewer will be buying this book. -- Chris

I really wish that I'd had this book when I first began messing around with looms ... As well as step by step instructions, the book is stuffed full of practical hints and advice gained in Anne Field's decades of weaving and teaching ... The no-nonsense approach, careful selection of projects and the wealth of experience Anne Field brings to the task of teaching and captures in print make this a book that every beginner or intermediate weaver will benefit from. It's fantastic and I'm really glad to see it. -- Gordon Findlay * Booksellers New Zealand blog *
