Book Launch: The Warp-Weighted Loom I Oppstadveven I Kljásteinavefstaður


The Warp-Weighted Loom I Oppstadveven I Kljásteinavefstaður


Book Launch - Ist December 2016






For almost 6 years I have been working with 2 wonderful women, Hildur from Iceland and Marta from Norway, at the Osteroy Museum in Norway.

Our initial project was to produce an instruction book for the Warp-Weighted Loom. It developed into much more but the main purpose still remains an instruction on how to weave on the loom.

Our book now includes the history of the loom in each of our own countries - Iceland, Shetland and Norway, and the connections we uncovered are amazing. We have also included several papers on textiles and research relating to the loom.

Here is a link to more information on the book and how to pre-order.
