Weaving Textiles That Shape Themselves sounds like a contradiction in terms, but this book sets out to show how textiles can do precisely that: shape themselves. Weaving with high-twist yarns and contrasting materials can create fabrics with lively textures and elastic properties. Although these fabrics are flat on the loom, they are transformed by washing - water releases the energy of the different yarns and the fabrics 'organize themselves' into crinkled or pleated textures. This exciting book, written by a distinguished weaver and lecturer, explains the processes and potential of this approach. With inspirational pieces, practical know-how and advice about building on experience, it gives a broad introduction to designing with high-twist yarns. Techniques range from plain weave to more complex structures, so the book offers ideas for both beginners and experienced weavers.
