Kirsten Glasbrook's beautiful designs, with their brilliant color ranges and evocative images, are combined with easy-to-follow instructions and detailed step-by-step photographs to create this inspiring guide. The tapestries the author makes are strong and durable and they look wonderful on walls - adding both color and a feeling of warmth and comfort. Miniature designs are worked using very fine yarns, or they can be worked on a huge scale with thick bundles of mixed fibres. The basic techniques are similar and all you need is a frame or a very simple loom. This book contains everything you need to know about the materials you need to get started, how to start and how to create wonderful patterns, landscapes and images. The author uses her stunning work to illustrate the techniques and a series of projects teach how to build up confidence and skills. This colorful, exciting book offers a rich source of stimulating and innovative ideas that will appeal to all abilities.
