Tablet Weaving with Wire - Franklin (Tasmania) Workshop

This workshop aims to introduce weavers to the challenge of weaving both flat and tubular fabrics in fine wire. Tablet weaving is particularly suited to wire, and we will explore a variety of techniques to help manage the peculiarities of weaving metal and to see which ones give the most interesting effects. Students will learn to set up a warp using tablets and wire and after weaving a sample will design and make two bangles: one in a flat and the other in a tubular weave.
