In Double-Faced Tablet Weaving, John Mullarkey teaches one of the most fascinating aspects of tablet weaving: how the structure combines aspects of spinning and weaving, and how twist affects design. Tablet weaving is endlessly fascinating: Just turn the cards and watch the patterns emerge. John makes it easy, and his excitement is infectious, so join him and a millennium of weavers in celebrating this ancient art.
