Zero waste is key to Maria Sigma's renowned weaving designs, and here she shows beginners - and more accomplished weavers too - how that philosophy can transform what you weave. Enjoy learning the basics of both heddle loom and frame loom weaving and succeed at 6 guided projects you'll enjoy adding to your home and wardrobe, while also learning how Sigma has built her practice on sustainability. Without our attention on the materials and process and how they relate to the world, no design is at its best. She shows how to consider the environmental impact at every stage of the design and making process, as well as within your daily work environment and studio space. Learn ways to decrease yarn waste and avoid unnecessary cuts, as well as how to consider carbon footprints in terms of your use of machines, water, and petroleum-sourced energy. With this guide, you can make handweaving an even more sustainable craft. AUTHOR: Maria Sigma (London), a professional tapestry weaver, is known for her work in promoting sustainable weaving of textiles, and also zero-waste principles. Her company, Maria Sigma Woven Textiles, is an award-winning textile brand specialising in zero-waste, ethical, handwoven textiles for interiors. Her motto in her life and in her business is No hidden environmental or social damage.
