I love weaving tapestries on small looms, and the hexagon loom is no exception.
Because of the nature of the hexagon loom, it’s perfect for weaving in a circle, working round and round.
I’ve been weaving tapestry (the warp strands are all covered, only the weft strands show) on the hexagon loom, in a circle.
I call this, ‘Mandala technique’, as you can weave beautiful mandalas this way.
Mandalas are meant to be meditative, and this technique is very contemplative, as well as being a lot of fun.
I’ve made a video tutorial, showing how to weave the mandala technique.
Gamers who make their own hexagon tiles will be able to use this technique to make one of a kind, absolutely gorgeous tiles for their games.
The hexagon in the video was woven on the 4 inch hexagon loom from Dewberry Ridge Looms LINK
Mandala technique works on all sizes of the hexagon looms.
