Tablet Weaving – Colours of the Landscape
Weekend Workshop at Newstead Railway Arts Hub
We’ll be dyeing threads with gathered plant dyes and then learning to weave bands on a portable loom that’s yours to keep. Tablet weaving is a method of making beautifully patterned narrow bands, belts and straps on an ingenious ‘loom’ consisting essentially of a pack of cards with holes in the corners. An ancient technology, examples of tablet looms have been uncovered from the Iron Age and earlier!
