April Classes at Fiber Space

Card Weaving with Marilyn

Saturday, April 16, 1:00PM - 4:00PM

Create your own woven bands for trim on clothing or straps for belts and bag handles using an ancient form of weaving. Weaving with cards (or tablets) creates a warp- facing sturdy band, fragments of which have been found in the archeological record dating as far back as the 6th century BC.

You will learn a little history of card weaving, learn to thread the cards and begin weaving your own band.

No previous weaving experience required.

Materials: Please provide a light and a dark thin yarn that is strong and smooth to use as warp. 3/2 or 5/2 cotton works best, but other fibers can be used as long as they are tightly plied and smooth. Don’t use a stretchy yarn.

A package of 25 cards can be purchased from the instructor for $10.

Must provide your own Inkle Loom.

Class cost: $ 45
