Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


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.

Learn about
  • the materials and supplies needed for this metal fiber technique
  • planning your project
  • preparing and beaming the warp
  • and choosing the weft
Christine then takes readers step by step through a "Foundation Project," a basic woven wire fabric serving as the basis for creating their own metal fabric crafts.

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.
