Card weaving or Tablet weaving is an ancient technique that can only be produced by hand. As of today, there is no machine that is capable of producing this weave that has been in existence since the Iron Age. We will be using cards threaded with colorful cotton warp to make long narrow hand woven belts, bands, or decorative trim for designer clothing. For those who took the IKAT class last June, you will have your design in place ready to weave.
I never seem to get frustrated or stuck, I just keep moving. When things get difficult I just take a different path. Eventual, things always workout. Life is constantly evolving so I just go with the flow. Since I weave the way I flow through life, my weavings just evolve. I am surrounded by projects in progress and don't feel the pressure to complete them. They will get done, it just takes time. I don't waste time on frustration. I move on to something else; come back later. I use past experiences to build and grow with something new. Eventually, everything falls into place. I just continue with a steady pace. Sometimes I just wait for the reaction of the fibers to show me what to do next. Doris Florig's Website
