Learn the ancient craft of tablet weaving using a custom birch board loom and our tablet weaving kit. By turning tablets that are laced with thread, you’ll create long thin bands with intricate patterns and vibrant color combinations. In the workshop, Lindsey Campbell, the artist, and instructor behind Hello Hydrangea, teaches you how to use a board loom and create two gorgeous projects, sharing her passion and skill for one of the oldest forms of weaving.

While there are many different types of looms used for tablet weaving, the set-up and compact size of the board loom makes the craft portable. The beautiful shuttle and birch board loom included in your kit was hand-crafted specifically for The Crafter’s Box. Lindsey guides you in how to decipher patterns, thread the cards, and warp the loom before you get started. She walks you first through a simpler band, ideal for a belt or a hat, then challenges you with a more advanced bookmark pattern. Lindsey also shares some common variations and hints on troubleshooting when working through a new pattern.
