Peter Collingwood was the pre-eminent British artist weaver of the past 50 years. Collingwood wrote five highly influential books of which the first, Techniques of Rug Weaving (1968), is probably the best known. His technical and aesthetic innovations have been appreciated around the world, most notably in his Macrogauze wall-hangings, in which his traditional skill and visual abstraction work in perfect harmony. A master craftsman and the author of several works on weaving, his work as a teacher and his generous spirit had Peter Collingwood was the pre-eminent British artist weaver of the past 50 years.

Tablet weaving is a very popular technique for weaving narrow bands for belts or trim. As Peter Collingwood so aptly says: a distinction has to be drawn between the earliest known fabrics that could have been tablet woven and those which in all probability were so woven. It is a weaving technique that requires very little investment beyond the actual thread for the product itself, making it affordable for many of us. The only tools that are required are a set of tablets. 1 In his book, he presents a chronological list of the most important historical finds from the earliest ones in bog burials in modern day Germany dating back as far as.

When Techniques of Tablet Weaving was first published in 1982 it sold out almost immediately. Weavers, fiber artists, and collectors, hungry for the vast and carefully organized repository of information it contained, have spent years excitedly sharing dog-eared paperback editions and roughly photocopied excerpts of this one-of-a-kind volume. No commercially published book, before or since, has captured the amount and quality of information and research on the art of tablet weaving (also known as card weaving).

Finally, long-deprived cardweaving enthusiasts can own their very own copy of Peter Collingwood's landmark book thanks to this high-quality 2015 reprint, complete with dozens of detailed photographs, pattern examples, and step-by-step instructions for each of the techniques presented.

In addition to instructional information, Techniques of Tablet Weaving contains pages of historical context for a variety of weaving techniques with clear and helpful tips on reproducing them precisely, as well as modern variations on the classics.

Once you have started to Card Weave and have a little knowledge but want more and want true understanding of what is actually happening, get this book. It will answer all your questions. It is not, however, a beginners guide to get you up and running. It isn't a step by step guide although he does explain particular procedures in very great detail. It's just that there are no projects in it for you to try from start to finish like other "How To" books. If you are a beginner get Candace Crockett's book and try a few projects and then buy this one. It will answer all your questions and provide you with more methods than the Crockett book.

I wanted to know more about brocaded tablet weaving, but didn't want to pay the much higher price for the "Ecclesiastical" cardweaving book, although there may be a less expensive way to get that (see those reviews). While Collingwood wrote for more experienced people (I'd seen his books on rug weaving and sprang and had had trouble understanding them, so I was nervous about ordering this one), I did not have nearly as much trouble with it. This may only mean that I have more experience with card/tablet weaving than with these other techniques. He definitely had what I wanted, including a simple way of making a "drawloom-type" mechanism for this purpose. However, I was looking for TECHNIQUES, not HISTORY, so be aware of that. For that particular use, this item is excellent. I can't say much about the other parts of the book as I wasn't (at this time, at least) very much interested in them except in a few spots (that may change). I will say, however, that it helps to know your weaving terminology in advance as he doesn't appear to define his terms. The book was worth the price in my mind.

I know a lot of beginning weavers who hear that this is "the" tablet weaving book, buy it, and end up frustrated - because it isn't a hands-on "how to" instruction book for crafters. It was written as a comprehensive catalogue of weaving techniques, aimed at researchers, textile historians, and museum workers - and in that respect, it really *is* The Book. That being said, Collingwood does provide plenty of patterns and other information on replicating different designs and weaving styles, but it helps to know the basics first. With that in mind, it's a top-notch reference, and the range of material covered is impressive.

This is dense with detail-- and overwhelming for the first time table weaver. Get Candice Crockett's _Card Weaving_ book first. When you decide you're ready to get geeky about tablet weaving then this is the book for you.

Comprehensive and informative. It was recommended by a friend and she was stunned to find it was back in print at a reasonable price! The hardcover is high-quality and will last a long time. Because it is a reprint of a lower-budget 1980's book, be prepared for lots of black and white pictures and hand drawings, but they are still very informative and convey the desired information well.

Lots of great information especially the history of inkle weaving. Definitely not a book for beginners.

There is an abundance of information in this volume, The Techniques of Tablet Weaving; however, the detailed information is sometimes so history bound that it is difficult to use in our modern world. Certainly, having the historical background of tablet weaving is important, but the how to weave this type of pattern is just as important for today's weavers. The book is further history bound because all of the graphics are in black and white. I know this is not a recent publication, but, after all, much of what makes tablet weaving so special are the colors used in the weaving. I am glad I purchased this book, but I am a bit disappointed at the same time.
This was a present for my daughter. It was very informative about tablet weaving. She was quite happy with it.
