by Betty Briand
book in French
Betty Briand's interest in textiles is rooted in her peasant childhood: weaving, spinning, vegetable dyeing, knitting, rope-making... Inhabited by this passion passed on by her grandparents and after a solid training with Anglo-Saxon teachers, she became a full-time weaving teacher. Today, she trains many trainees, sometimes from far away, in her ARTissage workshop-school located in Chinon in Touraine, while continuing her research on the subject.
A unique, complete, erudite, clear, practical and technical book on the art of weaving.
In this book, intended for weavers of all levels, the author, who is truly passionate about weaving, transmits the sum of several years of teaching, research and exploration to offer a progressive and fascinating learning method.
In this highly illustrated book, the drawings are by Alix Albrespy-Boiron and Angèle Coquerie and the photos are by Jacques Péré.
