Tablet weaving

Last month I was taught tablet weaving by an archeologist and I love it. But being tied to the fabric by a belt feels awkward to me. Does anyone here enjoy weaving bands? Do you use some kind of loom or plank?

These are my first tries:



Now I got some finer wool (cotton) to make a trim for some clothes. The thick wool you seen on the photos is nice and soft but a bit too much for this purpose. =)

They are lovely! I've never heard of tablet weaving, how is it done?

This video shows a bit of the technique for master weavers. =) The method I use is a bit easier, all tablets are turned at the same time in the same direction. (And of course I don't use real silver.)
