We Love Weaving!

3rd grade has been exploring the fiber arts.  We used a variety of textile materials to create these beautiful, hand woven artworks.

We began by learning some weaving vocabulary.
Then we made our looms by stringing warp threads on a cardboard loom.

After we made our looms, the fun part began.... weaving colorful yarn, ribbons and lace together!

It was tricky to figure out how to attach materials.  We got a lot of practice with tying knots!

Focused on the project.

Wow!  Kids love weaving.
