An exciting, unique, comprehensive, scholarly, clear, practical and technical book on the art of weaving.
In this book for weavers and weavers of all levels - beginners, amateurs and experienced - Betty Briand, a true passion for weaving, conveys the sum of several years of teaching, research and exploration to offer a progressive and fascinating learning method.

PART 1 - Materials and preparation for the loom: materials, tools, yarns, fabric design (weave, density, sampling), understanding the weaving, pedaling and tying patterns, installing the warp on the loom, correcting potential errors and then weaving
PART 2 - Weaving structures: fundamental weaves (linen, twill and satin), weft and warp reps, compound structures, openwork structures, deviated structures and double weaving
PART 3 - For deepen: the study of blocks and the draft profile, the analysis of a fabric, to evolve a structure, to install an additional chain, to be inspired and to create

Betty Briand's interest in textiles is rooted in her peasant childhood: weaving, spinning, vegetal dyeing, knitting, making ropes… Inhabited by this passion transmitted by her grandparents and after a solid training with Anglo-Saxon teachers, she now teaches weaving full time. Today, she trains many interns who sometimes come from far away in her studio-school ARTissage, located in Chinon in Touraine, while continuing his research on the subject.

A significant number of yarns used in this work are yarns from the Fonty collection.
