Item details

Tri-axial weaving is based on three axes, or directions, instead of the two directions used in most Western textiles. It is among the oldest forms of weaving, and in today’s world, industry uses triaxial weaving to produce strong, stable fabrics. There is also a growing interest in triaxial weaving as an art form. Through more than 200 diagrams and photos, you will learn the basics of the two simplest forms of triaxial weaving – hex weave and mad weave. Practice your new skills with thirteen projects. The five hex weave projects are stationery stars, a tiny Christmas tree made from recycled holiday cards, an accordion journal, and a faux bull’s eye clock. Eight mad weave projects cover pillows, tote and evening bags, a table runner, and eyeglass cases. Chapters include designing patterns, color, using paper, ribbons and yardage, and a troubleshooting section. This in-depth guide will inspire weavers, basket makers, quilters, and teachers alike.

I truly enjoy weaving, and mad weave gives me particular delight. I have been weaving professionally since the early 1990's and started delving deeply into triaxial weaving - particularly mad weave - in 2006. My creations have been sold in several Southeastern shops that cater to the lovers of handcrafted items.

I would be delighted to have you come into my shop and browse at: www.etsy.com/shop/TheMadWeaversStudio/

Thanks for dropping in.
