Tablet or Card Weaving

unikatissima Tablet Weave Card Weave

There’s a technique I haven’t tried yet although I have on my list for a very long time, and that’s tablet or card weaving.
It’s a very old technique I learned to know first in Museumsdorf Düppel, the reconstruction of an 800 year old village.
With card weaving you can make soo wonderful straps, similar to Kumihimo (but only similar! ;-)).
I’m at the point ‘already’ where I looked for some instructions (see links below) ;-)

  1. Hi Susann,

    Bandweben, ob mit Webkamm oder Kärtchen solltest Du unbedingt ausprobieren. Mit den Bändern kann man viele tolle Sachen machen.

  2. Kokopelli asked me to really try band weaving, whether with cards or rigid heddles once, because one can do great things with the bands.

    Kokopelli,

    thank you very much for mentioning ‘Kammweben’ (I believe that it is ‘rigid heddle weaving’ in English) which I haven’t seen yet.
    I think that this is something for my to-do-list as well ;-))
