Special exhibition on tablet weaving in Ellwangen
4th June thru 11th September 2005
However you look at it - the secret of handwoven ribbons and borders - a special exhibition at the Alamannenmuseum in Ellwangen
Belts, ribbons, borders and decorations woven on small looms were treasured by the Alamanni because of their variegated patterns and great durability. For several years the Alamannenmuseum has offered spring and fall courses in early medieval weaving technique. This special exhibition presents old and new patterns and techniques, from simple wristlets and bookmarks to elaborately fashioned horse bridles. The huge variety of colors used in the woven work contributed by weavers from all over Germany, is particularly impressive. The exhibition also offers the opportunity to observe weavers at work and try your own hand at weaving.
