On this past Friday I took a class on Tablet Weaving taught by Michael Cook. Michael has done some incredible Tablet Woven pieces. On his website you can see examples of his work.  Http://wormspit.com

Our looms were warped with black and white 10/2 mercerized cotton, using 15 tablets. This gives one a narrow band when woven.  More cards are used to increase the width of the band.  I used a Schacht inkle loom to weave on. The tablets are turned forward and backward to weave the pattern. Tablet Weaving seemed counter intuitive to me at first. Michael was very patient and encouraging as we learned the technique. The handout provided is also very helpful.

The next day at home I continued to practice Tablet weaving. My sampler was looking better. So in this case practice makes perfect or at least better.
