Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

A Scandinavian weaving magazine which travels the world and explores weaving techniques, traditions and innovations. Intriguingly unique but exquisitely produced, Vav magazine is dedicated to the world of Scandinavian weaving, and is the English edition of the most widely read textile and weaving magazine in Scandinavia. 

Each issue contains up to 10 complete weaving projects which include instructions, drafts and photographs. The weaving articles feature eminent weavers and samples of their work, traditional and experimental weaving techniques, and exhibition reviews. There are also useful features such as how to warp your loom, sley the reed, and use temples.

Published quarterly, this lovely magazine offers an excellent balance between articles about weaving and projects to try out yourself. The articles are well written, including features on famous weavers, weaving itself, weaving groups and weaving history. The second half of the magazine covers projects for every level of ability, whether this might be weaving a jacket, curtains or a rug. These are thoroughly described, and the magazine is filled throughout with some lovely photography.
