That's what one calls amber in ancient myths. But since the Stone Age, this fossilised resin is much sought after. Both pearls and figures were created from it. One of the oldest sculptures in northern Germany is the Weitsche elk, which was designed around 14,000 years ago. In the Bronze Age, the amber trade experienced a new dimension.

No experience in tablet weaving yet? With this course we create the basis for understanding tablet weaving. With an understanding of the structure of a board tape, patterns can then be easily woven - with or without a pattern font. This makes it possible to freely weave your own patterns without sample fonts.
