Includes bibliographical references and index.
"Offering a whistle-stop history of these two ancient crafts, Spinning and Weaving begins in pre-history, when people first wove yarns to create clothing and blankets, and goes on to explore the ways in which these techniques have continued to be important throughout human history (or should that be herstory), in artistic, economic and functional terms. The second part of the book brings us up to date, via interviews with modern day spinning and weaving artisans. These textiles artists have generously allowed the author a window into their studios and discussed with her the way they use and adapt traditional methods, techniques and tools for the twenty-first century. Photos of their work, and their working environment, offer a unique view into the world of this ancient craft. Finally, if you are inspired to try your hand at this fascinating and most ancient of crafts, the book also has a resources section. It includes a valuable list of suppliers of fibre, dyes, tools and yarn, as well as information about training courses, useful websites and more - everything you need to get started." --,Provided by publisher.
