S stands for Silk Painting

An art all by its own. Depending on the colors, it can be done by free hand, or filling the contours with one color, with an effect similar to stained glass. It requires special paints and techniques. It can also be decorated with salt patterns. It is a unique painting that can't be reproduced like serigraphy, so each piece is unique. Added by MirachRavaia.

T stands for Tablet Weaving

Also known as card weaving. In this technique tablets or cards with holes are used to lift and separate the yarn, then an extra piece of yard is used to create a weaving pattern. It's possible to create designs with multiple colors but it's limited to thin and mostly long pieces, like bracelets and belts. Different designs can be achieved with different tablets. A tutorial can be found here. Added by MirachRavaia.
