Introduction to tablet weaving - with Nadja of Dun in Mara

Last 2 tickets
"This class will give an introduction to tablet weaving - how it works mechanically, some (non-exhaustive) examples of its use in period, what you can do with it and how to read a pattern. Participants will set up their warp and begin weaving a band with a threaded pattern. We will all be making the same band (TBD which one).

If you've never tablet woven before and want to give it a go, or you would like a refresher, this is the class for you.

Weaving cards (enough for the pattern we will be making), other tools and warp and weft threads will be provided. I will have a few colour options for people to choose from.

You do not need to bring anything, but if you have your own cards or small weaving shuttles, or you have a particular colour combination in mind and want to bring your own threads, you are welcome to. Also if you have an inkle loom that you are bringing to the event, feel free to bring that, it can be used for tablet weaving as well."
