Synopsis

WEAVING WITH SMALL APPLIANCES. BOOK II- TABLET WEAVING. The art of tablet weaving is pre-historic, and has been practised generally all over the world throughout history. Many kinds of beautiful braids and narrow webs are still woven by this simple method in remote places where the primitive traditional arts and crafts still survive. The authors interest in this subject was further stimulated by seeing a tapestry in the V&A Museum in 1921 of which the central figure, the Virgin Mary, is depicted weaving an elaborate lace on a tablet loom. After much studing of the technique and the capacity of the little appliance the author presents the outcome of the experiments clearly in this books pages. This book was originally published in 1923. Many of the earliest books on weaving, textiles and needlework, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern edit
