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.
