    While there are glimmers of insight in this, it really should be titled Bauhaus Theory, rather than operate under the guise of being a resource for weaving theory While claiming that an explanation of the Bauhaus is necessary to understand how the weaving workshop was situated within the school, the emphasis of this text in fact lies too much on the former than on the latter, which its title falsely claims it explains.
