Learn Tablet Weaving with John Mullarkey. John is the guru of tablet weaving, designer of looms, and author of several books.  And he is coming to Columbia!  This two-day workshop – designed for beginners – will give you the knowledge and tools you need to create beautiful designs. On the first day, he will teach us the basics: how to read and design drafts, set up cards, weave and finish a friendship bracelet.  Along the way he’ll talk about avoiding common pitfalls and share tips and tricks for weaving perfect bands.  On day two we’ll learn how to weave diagonal patters, also called “Egyptian” Diagonals. John will teach us how to set up a circular warp, and use two packs of cards to create diagonal designs. No previous tablet weaving experience is needed to take this workshop. Participants will receive a set of 20 cards and a shuttle. The workshop is limited to 16 participants.  More details, including registration costs, to come.
