Yesterday, I attended the Tablet Weaving Workshop with John Mullarkey (Malarky Crafts, St. Louis, MO) sponsored by the Bloomington Spinners & Weavers Guild held in the Fountain Square Mall Atrium in Bloomington, IN.
There were nine students and I had a blast. It was so much fun learning the basics of tablet/card weaving and looking at all of the samples John has woven. Not to mention spending time with my friends from the guild.
Did you know that you can actually make fabric using the tablet weaving method; the jacket he was wearing was gorgeous and the fabric had been made using card weaving on a beamed loom. Personally I thought tablet weaving was like Inkle weaving and only for making straps, belts and lanyards. I learned.
