John Mullarkey teaches the basics of tablet weaving (or card weaving) on the Tablet Weaving Made Easy DVD, a 120-minute video workshop.
Imagine a 4-shaft loom you can carry in your pocket! Using the age-old art of tablet weaving (or card weaving), you can create beautifully patterned bands to use as belts, straps, bookmarks, or to embellish other weaving projects. In this video, John Mullarkey teaches everything you need to know to make your own tablet-woven bands:
Tablet-weaving tools and materials
How to read a tablet-weaving draft
How to warp with cards
Techniques for successful weaving, including managing selvedges and fixing mistakes
How to design your own patterns
How to finish your tablet-woven bands
Tablet weaving is endlessly fascinating: just turn the cards and watch the patterns emerge. John makes it easy, and his excitement is infectious, so join him and a millennium of weavers in celebrating this ancient art.
