Tablet Weaving for Beginners

This mini-workshop will introduce the participants to the versatility of tablet weaving and how it can be applied into finished projects or as embellishments on woven items. The participants will learn the history of tablet weaving and become familiar with the tools and the best yarn to use for specific projects. The students will learn one tablet weaving technique, threading defined patterns, and a warp will be made for that technique. Participants will learn how to weave it and how to design patterns for it. Several samples will be available for inspiration.
