What is thieving?
Thieving is a skill which allows players to obtain coins and items by stealing from market stalls or by pickpocketing NPC's. It is a great skill for starting off an account, as you will earn a lot of money very quickly.
A good place to train thieving is at west of bank at Edgeville (home).
Another good place is Ardougne.
Wilderness thieving gives more xp, but it's risky because you can be killed by players. Hardcore ironmen will lose their status when they die, so be careful! You need a level of 85 to train thieving at wilderness.

Tip: it may be a good idea to bring a chisel with you and craft the cut gems for maximum efficiency.
Pickpocketing is the act of stealing from anothers pocket. This results in little gold, but very high experience. The downside to Pickpocketing, is that you have a chance to get caught, which will cause the player to take damage and be stunned for a while.

The thieving master can be found at Edgeville and some other places. He can give you your skilling cape for free when you reach level 99. In addition, he can give you skilling tasks to obtain thieving points or money (you will also get participation points when you finish your task). Finally, you can see his master's shop where you can spend your thieving points.
This is the suggested method for 1-99 thieving:
