For the past couple of weeks the Cre8 Lab students have been concentrating on finishing the Mini Loom Weaving workshop.
Weaving is acknowledged as one of the oldest surviving crafts in the world. The tradition of weaving traces back to Neolithic times – approximately 12,000 years ago. Even before the actual process of weaving was discovered, the basic principle of weaving was applied to interlace branches and twigs to create fences, shelters and baskets for protection.http://www.weavedesign.eu/
The girls learnt very quickly that this was not going to be a speedy process, and some of them have take another week to complete their weave. It is always so interesting to see their individual designs and let their creative minds start to work as they start to understand what sort of things can be achieved through weaving.
Well done to all of you.
