Weft and warp - let's get weaving!

We learned about the history of weaving, particularly how many ways the Anglo-Saxons used the skill. They made clothes, rugs and blankets from wool and baskets and fences by weaving willow. We began our practice of this skill with paper and card.

We were very proud of the results, especially those of us who found it quite tricky. As children kept saying, "This is really fiddly!" and by the end "This looks great!" and even a super confident, "I bet I could make some clothes now!"
