Best of Handwoven Honeycomb - Technique Series - eBook Printed Copy Weaving Book
44 pgs. (paper, color)
You'll find this most recent eBook from Handwoven fascinating. It concentrates on the seemingly complex Honeycomb technique long loved by weavers for its “not flat” texture. Most woven cloth is intentionally flat, with grid-like pattern potential, developing in a rectilinear fashion. Honeycomb transcends the usual grid, creating wavy lines and circular cells with three-dimensional depth. As you will see, a range of threadings can be used for honeycomb. If you study all of the projects in this eBook, you’ll come up with ways to create a honey-comb treadling on the warp of some other project that you are just finishing. First, read all about how honeycomb works in the introductory article by Sharon Alderman. Next, weave a swatch collection following her instructions. You can then work your way through the projects in the book, using honeycomb as a decorative effect for clothing, a sturdy fabric for bags and upholstery, and as borders for table runners and placemats. Your yarn stash will be your best friend as you try out small amounts of thick yarn as outline wefts for honeycomb cells
