Kirsten Glasbrook‘s colourful and exciting book ‘Tapestry Weaving’ will appeal to all lovers of colour and texture.
The various techniques of tapestry weaving are explored through Kirsten’s evocative designs. The step-by-step guidance and detailed photographs teach the weaver many techniques. How to create motifs, borders, and shading, as well as finishing techniques such as tassels and beading.
Weaving a tapestry is like painting with yarn. The inspiring gallery of Kirsten’s work shows the versatility of the craft.
This excerpt from the book illustrates how a design can be ‘traced’ onto the warp threads and interpreted with the coloured rug yarn.
