Description

Learn to tablet weave in a focussed workshop which introduces a low-tech way of creating narrow bands and braids which can be used to form ribbons, book marks, mug rugs, pouches and closures. Bands can be sewn together to make larger pieces.

We can tablet weave using simple small equipment and create intricate patterning. Learning to tablet weave is a great way to understand the weaving process and can easily be continued at home. Children are particularly quick to pick up this technique. We will be using small inkle looms, and during the day will discuss how tablet weaving weaving compares to inkle weaving.

This two day bespoke tablet weaving workshop is for up to 4 participants. The students will weave a narrow band with tablets on an inkle loom. Suitable for children aged 10 and above, accompanied by an adult.
