Inkle Weaving Introduction I

Discover the technique of inkle/band weaving in this beginner-friendly workshop. “Inkle” is a term that refers to a specific type of band or strip created on an inkle loom. These bands are often woven in colorful patterns and can vary in width, usually ranging from a half-inch to a few inches wide and several feet in length. These narrow woven strips can be used as decorative trim or edging on clothing, bags, or various textiles. They also make make awesome belts, bag straps, or even as harnesses for instruments due to their strength and ability to support weight. Other fun uses for inkle bands are bookmarks, keychains, headbands, or decorative edges for pillowcases or table runners.
