Weaving with Wire: Creating Woven Metal Fabric
Weaving with Wire : Creating Woven Metal Fabric
By (author) Christine K. Miller
Weave with wire and fiber to produce metal fabric—an entirely new art material that can be used for jewelry, sculpture, basketry, and more.
Use a four- or eight-harness loom to weave an entirely new art material that you may never before have considered—metal!
By using a wire warp and fiber weft, intermediate- to advanced-level weavers can create a woven metal fabric that is strong, malleable, and sculptural.
Expert weaver Christine K. Miller has been weaving with wire for 30 years, and her online and in-person workshops are highly sought after. She's the only weaver teaching this amazing technique.
- the materials and supplies needed for this metal fiber technique
- planning your project
- preparing and beaming the warp
- and choosing the weft
Readers can be inspired by Christine's work and what she has made with woven wire—baskets, jewelry, sculptures, and more—with detailed information on how she made them. They can then re-create these pieces or use them as a foundation to craft their own metal fabric creations.
In addition, Christine includes a fascinating chapter on using the principles of art and design to let the reader's imagination soar when crafting with woven wire fabric.
