If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you will know that my boyfriend and I are avid historical reenactors, especially of the 8th century Viking kind.
Recently, I’ve gotten into the craft of tablet weaving, also known as card weaving. A type of weaving that’s been around since the BC ages, table weaving was one of the most common ways that Vikings would make trim and belts.
I haven’t been doing this for too long, so I’ve only just started experimenting with different fibers, different thicknesses, and such. But it’s a really relaxing sort of thing, if you’re into repetitive motions.
For me, the hardest part is figuring out a pattern on my own. While there are plenty of patterns out on the internet for me to follow and recreate, I want to be able to eventually look at a piece of weaving, and make exactly the same thing.
Tablet weaving is probably something I will continue to keep doing. So hopefully there will be more posts in the future regarding this! 🙂
