(Note: This is an in-person workshop)
This class is one of John's newest workshop offerings.
Saturday, September 23, 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm.
Come learn one of the oldest tablet weaving techniques. Bands found during the 5th and 6th centuries were woven using a very specific and different tablet weaving technique. Although similar to the more common threaded-in patterns in setup, the weaving for these bands produces a thicker, stronger, reversible band that is perfect for bag straps or belts.

Student Supplies: Inkle style loom, 20 4-hole cards, belt shuttle, scissors, three balls or cones of 10/2 mercerized or unmercerized cotton or #10 crochet thread in three different colors. At least ½ ounce of each.
