John Mullarkey

John Mullarkey is passionate about teaching tablet weaving and exploring new ways to make the art form more contemporary.  He is a nationally recognized teacher, valued for the patience, clarity and organization he brings to his classes.  After beginning to teach in 2009, John left a software development career to focus on weaving and teaching full time.

John has won many awards, is a frequent contributor to national fiber arts publications, and has authored books (“A Tablet Weaver’s Pattern Book,” “Tablet Weaving: Egyptian Diagonals,” et al.) and videos (“Tablet Weaving Made Easy,” “Double-Faced Tablet Weaving”) about the craft.  His work appears in international shows and has been displayed at museums.  The popular Schacht Zoom Loom is based on John’s design.
