Six-Holed Tablet Weaving
Hi Everyone. There has been so much activity regarding warp-faced bands and different patterning techniques that I thought these samplers might be of interest. These are woven with 6-holed hexagonal tablets, and were part of a research project to understand how to weave images and patterns in various techniques This first one is 3/1 twill with 3 colours arranged AABBCC.
This next one is 3/1 repp with 3 colours arranged AABBCC.
This third one is 3/1 twill with three colours arranged AACBBC. Colour C in this sample is turquoise and doesn't show up well in the picture, but it forms an outline around all of the images.
This last one is diagonals with floats and is threaded in six colours.
For anyone interested in weaving with 6-holed tablets, a monograph of my research is available as a PDF download on my web-site:
