I'm assuming you liked Cat Blue's weaving art lesson above.
Check out these directions I found doing a google search on "How To Weave on a Cardboard Loom" by jessieratfink - Step by Step directions with pictures.
The size of your loom will depend on how big you want their finished project to be.
- Fabrics: organza, cottons, flannels
- Fibers: jute, burlap, ribbons
- Metals--colored wires, metal sheets or strips
- Beads--those that look stones or wood
In Cat's lesson she introduces the items to weave in started with the following paragraphs:
[As I introduced the different items I told them what I had been thinking of but gave the students permission to attach any meaning or symbolism to each material that they liked.]
For instance, jute and burlap would represent the roughness and hardship of their lives and some of the fibers they would be using at that time.
Hope this helps! Please ask if you have any more questions.
