Weaving Links

A helpful tip before you start weaving to think about or plan how your wall hanging is going to look. If you are a beginner, try and keep it simple. Make one similar to shown on the cover of the booklet. If you are brave go for it and youtube away to find new/more advanced techniques.

For entry level weaving techniques, we found this video to be very clear and helpful. She is using a cardboard loom, which in essence is the same thing, ours is just a little bit more stable and permanent.

A really fun and inspirational video about Wendy’s weaving adventures. Great for creative inspiration about what is possible, she also talks about a technique called looping and gets very creative with colour. The possibilities are endless.

To finish up the top, we used a hem stitch. I followed this video closely to understand the method
