Weaving: Contemporary Makers on the Loom by Katie Treggiden

Weaving: Contemporary Makers on the Loom by Katie Treggiden


Weaving is a centuries-old craft with a fascinating history, and one that continues to evolve. Today it is revived by designers, artists and modern artisans around the world: from wall hangings and carpets to art installations and technological delights. 
Weaving - Contemporary Makers on The Loom provides an image of this sparkling weaving revival based on profiles of more than twenty contemporary weavers: for example, Dee Clements of Studio Herron designs and weaves bespoke rugs, Alexandra Kehayoglou designs breathtaking natural landscapes (including Dries van Noten), makes Daniel Harris textile for well-known clothing brands with looms from the 19 thcentury and weaves Brent Wadden beautiful pieces of museum level. With beautiful images of their workshops, work and inspiration.   

In the essays by author Katie Treggiden we read how craft relates to topics such as emancipation, migration and new technologies. Bauhaus weaver Anni Albers is also discussed extensively - she is the subject of a large retrospective exhibition at the Tate Modern in London this autumn (October 2018 - January 2019) and a reference for everyone who deals with textiles today.
