Presenters: Small Bands Study Group
Historically, narrow bands were a necessity, essential for both work and clothing. More recently, handwoven narrow bands are used mostly for decoration, woven in a variety of techniques. Instead of being woven on a shaft-loom, bands can be made with little or only a modest amount of equipment. Remembering Dianne Leach’s passion for band weaving, the Small Bands Study Group will present a potpourri of ways to weave narrow wares, including inkle, tablet weaving, rigid-heddle and pick-up back-strap weaving. There will be opportunities to try your hand at these various techniques.
