I’m a little obsessed with weaving right now, which is going to show over the next few days of challenges.
It’s something we probably all tried as kids, so it feels easy, there’s no pressure for a certain outcome.
And the results are pretty much always beautiful.
Today I decided to pull some old art out of a bag I was taking to the recycling bin and to do some paper weaving of two paintings together.
If you don’t have old art lying around you can scribble on a couple of pages using different colors or materials. Or use junk mail or pages from magazines.
Decide which piece will be the “warp” or the frame for the weaving to be worked on.
Next, cut your other piece or pieces into strips. Again, I tried to make them about the same width but it’s no big deal at all.
Remember the way? Over, under, over, under across, then under, over, under, over for the next one.
As I was doing this I remembered weaving paper placemats at school, probably for Thanksgiving or something.
Did you do this craft long ago? I’d love to know what memories it sparked.
And if you try it again, I’d love to see your creations with the tag #ourdailycraft.
