This past spring, I spent a couple of weeks vacationing on one of the Gulf Islands. The islands are home to a lot of artist and the place I stayed at was showcasing some of their work in the dinning area and lobby. One piece that caught my eye was a woven tapestry, it was quite stunning. It occurred to me that I didn't know a thing about weaving. When I got home I did a bit of Google searching and payed a visit to the library to try to learn more about weaving. I actually did not find a lot of information for beginners wanting learn how to weave online and the library books were old and had to be retrieved from storage, but I did figure out how to make a simple frame loom and weave on it.
Here is my instructable on How to Weave on a Frame Loom
I included a glossary
to help with the weaving terminology.
