We are honored to be hosting a weekend with John Mullarkey of Malarkey Crafts! John is THE bucket list instructor for tablet weaving (also known as card weaving). All events are at the Somerville Armory for the Arts - transit and (free!) parking information is available at http://artsatthearmory.org/about/getting-here/
We kick off the weekend with our Guild Meeting, on Friday May 12th, from 7-9 pm, where John will speak about uses for the products of tablet weaving in "What to do with all of these bands!" This lecture is at the Center for Arabic Culture - free for Common Cod members, $6 for guests.
On Saturday, May 13th from 10 am-5 pm (with a one hour lunch break) John will be teaching Tablet Weaving: Threaded-In Designs. This is the basics of tablet weaving and is perfect if you are interested in learning the art and craft - no experience necessary. This is in Studio Not 2B. $99 for Common Cod members, $109 for the general public, plus a $15 materials fee (see below).
On Sunday, May 14th (Mother's Day!) from 10 am-5 pm, John will be teaching Tablet Weaving: Double-card Double-turn Diagonals. As the name suggests, this workshop focuses on weaving diagonals. No tablet weaving experience necessary. This workshop is in classroom B5. $99 for Common Cod members, $109 for the general public, plus a $15 materials fee (see below).
For both classes: There is a $15 material fee for each student which includes a shuttle and 20 cards. Students are required to bring yarn (2 balls or cones of one light color, 2 balls or cones of one dark color, size 10/2 cotton or #10 crochet cotton).
