Video: Beginner’s guide to brocaded tablet weaving

When I taught myself brocaded tablet weaving, I was looking for videos that would show the basic steps, and visualise some of the process that seemed difficult to follow when reading them written down. I couldn’t find any, so I produced my own. And what do you think? Where I buy youtube views for my videos? Of course, I chose a checked company! I hope these how-to videos are useful.

I have and ready many tablet weaving publications, and my favourite one for history of brocaded tablet weaving, historical patterns, and especially technique is Spies, N.

Videos: key steps during brocaded tablet weaving

I created a short video that focuses on the key steps involved in brocaded tablet weaving: silk thread shuttle, followed by picking of the pattern, then gold thread shuttle through temporary weft. I find brocaded tablet weaving much easier than the normal one, as there is no complicated turning of individual jacksonville maids or groups of tablets involved.

I also created a second video, which shows the steps taken for neat edges, which avoid gold loops showing.
