Tablet Weaving: Beyond the Pattern

John Mullarkey - Beyond the Pattern103 Saturday AM

Tablet weaving is unique in that there is very little that is not allowed.  We will explore what can be done to the band beyond just weaving the expected pattern.  What happens if the cards get shuffled?  What if we use more than one shuttle, or more than one shed?   Discover how one warp has the potential for so many different looks.
