Film Description:
"That weaving, one of man's oldest arts, still offers pleasure and the opportunity for self-expression to both beginner and expert, is seen as we watch a class of weavers, under expert guidance, dress their looms and weave useful and attractive articles. The process of weaving is seen in closeup and slow motion. Traditional Scottish and European designs are shown, with excellent contemporary work from every part of Canada indicating the popularity of the craft today."
