Publisher Comments:

Kirsten Glasbrook's beautiful designs, with their brilliant color ranges and evocative images, are combined with easy-to-follow instructions and detailed step-by-step photographs to create this inspiring guide. The tapestries the author makes are strong and durable and they look wonderful on walls - adding both color and a feeling of warmth and comfort. Miniature designs are worked using very fine yarns, or they can be worked on a huge scale with thick bundles of mixed fibres. The basic techniques are similar and all you need is a frame or a very simple loom. This book contains everything you need to know about the materials you need to get started, how to start and how to create wonderful patterns, landscapes and images. The author uses her stunning work to illustrate the techniques and a series of projects teach how to build up confidence and skills. This colorful, exciting book offers a rich source of stimulating and innovative ideas that will appeal to all abilities.


A colour illustrated guide for tapestry weavers of all abilities.

About the Author

Kirsten Glasbrook trained as a weaver in Denmark where she was born. After moving to London in the 1960's she spent time restoring antique tapestries. She taught part time at the Bath Academy of Art for many years, and now lives and works in Devon, running workshops and classes for adults and children. Her commissions have included work for the Forestry Commission and numerous private collectors in the UK and other countries. Using mainly wool, linen and cotton, she designs and weaves tapestries, often with a mythological, mystical or meditative theme. The weaving techniques are simple and traditional and the brilliant color ranges, and diversity of texture in the different yarns, are a constant challenge and excitement.
