This is a very practical book guiding the weaver step by step in the process of creating collapsed weaves
Author: Anne Field
In this book, the author Anne Field describes the various techniques weavers can use to achieve collapsed weave textures. These methods include: using yarns which have different properties as to shrinkage, twist and size; using weave structures that react with each other to form ridges and hollows, and a combination of the two. This is a very practical book guiding the weaver step by step in the process of creating collapsed weaves.
The book is filled with images of finished work by a number of artists as well as detailed grids for setting up the loom. This is a fairly new-ish area and Anne Field is one of the leading artists in the field.
Anne Field is a New Zealand weaver who lectures around the world. She has written a number of books previously and she is considered one of the top people in the field.
