Oo, that's sparkly! Adding brocade to tablet woven bands is a practice dating back as far as the 6th century that was still very much in use in the 16th century. We'll review the types of materials used on historical bands, and then move on to techniques and materials available today. There will also be a review of common challenges as well as time for Q&A. Students who wish to practice the technique should bring a loom warped with 24 cards of a solid color, matching weft, and a high contrast second color weft.
