Simple, Hands-On Tablet Weaving
HL Elewys of Finchinefeld & HL Aenor de PessacOlympic Room
Tablet weaving is an ancient art of narrow band weaving, dating back more than 500 years BCE to the late Middle Ages, marked by its high level of complexity and popularity all over Europe - from the Middle East to Scandinavia.
Want to try tablet weaving to see if you enjoy it? Have you tried tablet weaving and struggled with figuring out (or remembering) how to do it? Do you have a loom and want to put it to work? This is your opportunity to try your hand at threaded-in tablet weaving and see if you'll be hooked!
Students will be working on weaving a very simple Oseberg tablet weaving pattern which dates to 834 AD. We will have a limited number of inkle looms to share so you can try a little weaving. If you have an inkle loom, bring it and we can help you warp up for tablet weaving.
Cards, yarn and handout will be provided. More students can join the class if they don't mind sharing looms.
