I went on a frame loom weaving course with Mary a few years ago and was hooked! I love her use of textures and yarns to create nature-inspired hanging weavings. We have since run a few nature-inspired weaving workshops at my studio, the next one is on 30th January. She brought out this beautiful new guide to weaving a couple months ago and I’m excited to add it to my collection. It’s the perfect gift for craft lovers.
Weaving, by its nature, is a gentle and slow craft. It forces you to take time away from the daily grind and reconnect with your natural surroundings. In this beautiful new guide to weaving, Mary Maddocks brings this ancient art to the modern day. Packed with step-by-step tutorials and stunning lifestyle photography, this book starts with the basics; learn how to set up your loom, the essential stitches, discover how to create unique pattern and shapes – then explore your creativity further as you develop your own designs. The projects include wall hangings, cushion covers, a clutch bag, table mats, jewellery and more. Using organic materials and taking inspiration from the natural world, the projects in this book will encourage you to bring the outside into your home. The possibilities are endless.
