Tree Weavings in Progress
This is the lesson made famous by Mrs. Cassie Stephens! I usually do a more traditional rectangle 9in x 13in weaving. However, time seemed in short supply this year. The tree weaving takes a lot less time & is more forgiving for those students that struggle with hour glassing. Week one I had students draw & paint a landscape for the background. Week two they warped their loom & started the first string. Week three students continued the weaving and began adding beads. Most students are almost finished after week three. It will take a partial class to finish the rest. They've loved it!! Adding the beads was a new trick for me....but I really like it. Even if I return to the rectangular weaving...I think I'll keep the beads!!
