Introduction to Card/Tablet Weaving workshop

 

Card/Tablet weaving workshop update:  Attendees enjoyed learning a new weaving technique and were amazed at the variety of patterns that can be woven with cards.

Learn an inexpensive and portable method of weaving that goes back to the Egyptians, card or tablet weaving.  Begin to learn the language of weaving.  Instead of a loom, you’ll use cards and something to hold the warp threads under tension.  Learn how to read card weaving patterns, thread the cards and how to turn them to weave.  Card weaving produces a warp-faced fabric that is related to braiding.

Join us Tuesday June 27, 6:45 p.m. at the Cooper House across the street from the Central Presbyterian Church (406 Randolph Ave, Huntsville).  Free use of weaving supplies during the class, $10 if you keep the cards and shuttle, payable at workshop.  Pre-register by June 23 by email to HsvFiber @gmail.com.  Handouts will be sent by email. Workshop open to adults and youth ages 14 and up.

If you have them, bring two C-clamps (at least 2-3”) to use a table top.  To make your work more portable, bring two C-clamps and a board at least 2’ long.  The leader will provide all the supplies and equipment for use in the workshop.  No weaving experience is necessary.
