New Age Looping: A Handbook for Fiber Artists, Donna Kallner.
Older than weaving, knitting and crochet, looping is a living legacy from the Stone Age that contemporary fiber artists give their own spin. Looping creates a fabric so stable it will not unravel. It’s ideal handwork for travel and times when you have frequent distractions. Rediscover this exciting and versatile technique, and begin your own New Age of exploration. Learn looping techniques and variations you can use with many different fibers to create bags, garments, vessels and more. In-depth instructions help you master tension control and shaping. Sample projects help you get started, and you learn to design projects of your own. See how this ancient craft continues to evolve, and become part of a timeless tradition.
In New Age Looping, you get the benefit of what students have taught Donna in the more than 10 years that she has been teaching this technique. In this book, she has laid out a progression you can follow on your own to build a solid set of skills that includes how to design projects yourself.
This book focuses on uses for basic looping (basic naalbinding) as Donna has experimented with and interpreted the technique for modern fiber artists.
The book is spiral bound so it lies flat. It’s packed with illustrations. Sample projects are pictured in color, but instructions emphasize ways to adapt a basic idea to your own style and materials. Softcover spiral-bound, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. 115 pages. Self-published.
