Taste of Card Weaving

  • Oatland Island Wildlife Center 711 Sandtown Road Savannah, GA, 31410 United States (map)

Taught by Alex Forby.

In this Beginners Card Weaving Class you will learn to make your own belts and straps using an ancient weaving technique of turning cards. This is also sometimes called Tablet Weaving. You will be guided through preparing your yarn, threading your cards, weaving your pattern and finishing your belt. After finishing your first basic pattern you can use this technique to create anything from curtain ties to clothing embellishments to yoga straps. It is fun and addictive, and you will find so many uses for your new hobby!

Materials and/or Materials Fee: there will be a kit available for purchase from the instructor which includes a set of 12 cards and fiber for one strap. ($8)
