Creating useful and decorative pieces with natural materials is extremely enjoyable and satisfying. Many of the projects in this book can be achieved by those with little or no weaving experience, and there are projects that require some previous weaving knowledge for those who w...ant to extend their weaving repertoire or who like a challenge. From delicate cords for jewellery to rugged hefty thick ropes used in outdoor art, from useful bottle carriers and decorative flask holders to toys for children and pets, window blinds and table runners, mobiles and fiery dragons, or Taniwha, this book shows how basic weaving, knotting and plaiting techniques can be used for the creation of any number of useful, fun, and beautiful items with wide appeal. With its strength, durability, flexibility while green and hardness when dry, New Zealand flax is an ideal material for weavers to create practical items as well as decorative pieces. As a sustainable and biodegradable resource, it is a perfect weaving material for a world with too much plastic.
