The Ultimate Band: Card Weaving Primer with John Mullarkey
Tired of knitting I-cord? Bored with store-bought webbing? Learn the fundamentals of card weaving! This ancient portable weaving technique takes little investment in tools but produces the strongest, most durable, most beautiful bands imaginable for custom camera and guitar straps, belts, and straps for shoulder or carry bags, or facing for a cardigan. We will discuss the basics of reading a draft, warping a loom, and weaving a band. This style of card weaving is straightforward and easy to weave, but allows for very colorful repeating patterns.
Note: No prior weaving experience is necessary. Portable looms will be provided for the students to borrow.
