By Ute Fischer; Translated by Anna Cardwell
Weaving is a creative and practical art that's great fun for all ages and abilities. This original book shows you how to weave a wonderful variety of objects -- special jewellery, a pretty bag, juggling balls, a snug scarf and even a scary spider in its web.
Some of the items have handy everyday uses -- a phone pocket, a mug warmer and a coin purse -- and some are just great fun -- fairyland mushrooms, a dreamcatcher and an Easter hen.
Each enjoyable project is accompanied by easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions and colour photos showing children how to weave with a variety of materials from traditional wool, to rags and plastic bags.
Ideal for parents or teachers, the projects are most suitable for children aged 7 to 14 years old; although a pattern for a pom-pom which may be introduced in junior kindergarten age, and then simple weaving, eg, for a wide belt, which may be introduced in senior kindergarten is also included.
Softcover, 104 pages, with full colour illustrations. 229 x 210 mm.
'This book brings a new dimension to weaving. It would really appeal to an artistic child.'
