Read Rep Weave and Beyond (The Weaver's Studio series) by Joanne Tallarovic Online


Joanne Tallarovic reveals how she modifies traditional Swedish ripsmatta or Scandinavian rep weave to create her highly prized handwork Often associated with rag rugs, rep is a simple weave structure in which the warp almost entirely covers the weft While Scandinavian rep weave is usually characterized by bold geometric patterns, the author has evolved the tradition by combining blocks in unexpected ways and introducing evocative contemporary colorways The 29 masterfully designed projects including clothing, table linens, rugs, and wall hangings will lead handweavers to their own explorations and innovations Designed for beginning to advanced weavers, the projects are accompanied by step by step instructions, clear illustrations, and inspiring color photographs....

    The title Rep Weave and Beyond led me to think that this book would be advanced. It is very basic and unhelpful to weavers who are familiar with Rep Weave.

    Rep Weave and Beyond is a joy to look at and read. As a weaver of many years, this is at the top of my list of inspirational books. First of all, it's visually beautiful, being filled with full-color photographs of the author's work, which is gorgeous. Ms. Tallarovic lives in Arizona, and she draws inspiration for her elegant color ways from the hues of the southwest: ecru, gold, bronze, terra cotta, reds, greens, dusky purples, and turquoise. She seems to be comfortable using both earth tones as well as more vibrant colors. She has based many of her designs on Native American weavings and pottery patterns. These are sensitive interpretations done with respect for the traditions she borrows from, and her incorporation of the patterns into a European weave structure works very well aesthetically.
