REGISTRATION CLOSED

Card weaving, or tablet weaving, is an ancient art that employs the use of cards or tablets to create an endless variety of surprisingly complex patterns. This method produces very strong, tightly woven straps or belts. Ancient peoples used these for bridles, saddle girths, belts, girdles, garters, and more.
In this two morning workshop, we will make belts using simple patterns. By the end of the class, students will have sufficient experience to continue weaving on their own and experiment with a variety of patterns. All materials included for making one strap or belt. Students will leave with some materials to make additional items using their own yarn.

Ages 12-18
Tuesday, June 20 AND Wednesday, June 21 10:00 am – 12 noon
$45 members/$55 non members
