John Mullarkey Tablet Weaving Workshop - Woven Shoe Laces

(Note: This is an in-person workshop)

This class is always super fun, even if you've tablet woven before and woven shoe laces!

Friday, September 22, 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm.

Weave your own shoe laces! Using a weaving technique called tablet weaving, and literally using cards as your loom, learn how to weave laces out of crochet or weaving cotton. Your fly shoes will only get flyer with laces you’ve woven for them.

Materials Fee: $2 includes documentation, payable to instructor

Skill Level: Beginner: No weaving experience required.

Student Supplies: Inkle style loom, 20 4-hole cards, belt shuttle, scissors, four balls or cones of 10/2 mercerized or unmercerized cotton or #10 crochet thread. Each ball should be at least 1/2 ounce. Two balls of one color, and two balls of one different highly contrasting color. There will not be time in class to wind off, so please come prepared with four yarn sources.
