Weaving takes time and patience. Few students demonstrate the ability to “Engage & Persist” (one of the 8 studio habits we engage in as artists in the studio). Below is a good start by a fiber artist who was inspired by the video Weaving on a Cardboard Loom, available on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbtKnvc_9No
Students make their looms from recycled cardboard and warp them with string or yarn. We have lots of donated yarn, for the weft, thanks to our supportive CBMS community.
