This project was made possible through the support of the following people and organizations. I wish to thank Kelly Thompson for her mentorship and guidance, and for providing me with opportunities and encouragement to pursue weaving research and present my work. There would be no book without Max Addington’s talent, hard work and support with layout and graphic design. Thank you to the Fine Arts Reading Room for compelling me to take on my first publication, and for funding it. Thanks to FASA for funding the online platform.
