Weaving Sanda-Himo Bands A traditional woven band from Japan.
In this workshop you will learn how to weave a narrow Sanada-Himo bands with a rigid heddle and shuttle using a backstrap. The backstrap is a narrow belt to which the weaving end of the warp is attached. The other end of the warp is fixed to a g-clamp or other fixed hook. The weaver can tension the warp by leaning backwards and forwards. The pattern of the band comes from the colour order of the warp threads. The weft is a thicker yarn.
It is a very portable hobby and everything that you need will fit into a small shoe box. No bulky equipment is required. You can continue this craft at home with the equipment provided in the workshop.
