Paula writes the following about her programs:
demonstrate Inkle Loom Weaving, Stick Weaving and making cord with a
The Inkle Loom is a small loom that is used to weave bands that are used as straps for a variety of purposes such as sashes, garters, straps for canteens, rifles etc.
Stick Weaving is a very simple and portable form of weaving that is used to create a basket weave texture without a frame or loom. I have several extra sets of weaving sticks so anyone who would like to try can do so.
The Lucet is used to make a very strong square cord that can be used in a variety of ways. It is said to have been used by the Vikings to make their fishnets.
I also make all of our Period Garments and can explain construction, fabrics and use of different garments.
I am hoping in the near future to learn other forms of early weaving techniques.”
