Get started and learn the basics with this miniature, no-nonsense guide to weaving!

From best-selling author and crafting queen Claire Gelder, this gorgeous mini guide is packed full of weaving know-how, practical illustrations and comes with four simple-but-stunning projects.
Perfect for complete beginners, Claire clearly explains everything you need to know about weaving: choosing and using different looms; how to make and successfully warp a loom; a selection of weaving stitches; and how to remove your material from the loom.

It is structured as a simple 3-step course that will help you progress from bronze to gold as your skills and confidence grow. Before you know it you'll be weaving wall hanging, place mat and coasters on a rectangular loom, and a cushion and bag on a circular loom.

Filled with positive affirmations and beautifully illustrated, this wonderful book is the ideal introduction to weaving for a complete beginner.

Claire Gelder loves all things hand-made, hand-woven and hand-crafted. She has been crafting for relaxation and fun for over twenty years. In 2015, Claire left her career as an NHS Director to launch her new business, Wool Couture, which specializes in knitting, crocheting, weaving and macrame. She quickly got her DIY craft kits on the shelves of retail giant John Lewis and, in 2017, secured two Dragons' Den (UK equivalent of the Shark Tank) investors to help her pass on her passion of crafting to the next generation. Adding a modern twist to age-old pastimes knitting and crochet, Claire uses giant, chunky yarn and oversized knitting needles made in her own factory. As well as a successful entrepreneur, Claire is also a firm believer in the therapeutic side of craft, particularly its benefits to mental health and well-being. Claire lives in Wakefield, UK.
