Do you want to take your paper weaving to the next level?
Most of us know of paper weaving as something we did as kids.
Maybe paper weaving as a kid was the first time you had ever woven anything (and maybe it still is!) That is OK! This e-book is great for weavers of all levels.
Just because it is something that can and should be taught to kids doesn't mean that it doesn't have its own unique possibilities that you can explore!
Paper weaving isn't just for kids.
I started weaving with paper in college as a way to create artwork with my journals and have since been exploring its many amazing possibilities.

Hi! I'm Nicole!
I am a weaver and fiber artist that loves to share her passion with anyone willing to listen! I started weaving in 2012 as a student at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) and I haven't stopped since. I have been teaching people how to weave since 2015 with my in-person classes at local art centers, yarn shops, and a semester as adjunct faculty at VCU. I have taught frame weaving (2 and 4 selvedge), weaving on a floor loom, tapestry, embroidery weaving, introduction to textiles, and more!
I began Warped Fibers at the beginning of 2020 so that I could connect and teach more people about the wonderful world of weaving (gotta love alliteration!) Weaving is a fun, meditative, historically significant, and enriching skill that ANYONE can learn.
