Over and Under : Weavings

Second Grade Weavings

Some of my favorite Art Studio moments happen when we weave. Children practically inhale the tactile nature of yarn. They feel very grownup using tricky words like "warp" and "weft".  Each child naturally gravitates to his/her own explorations and expressions:there's never an "I can't" or "I'm no good at"... they just happily weave.

And, even better, kids bound through the door knowing what lies ahead. Right to the looms, the yarn, their seats, the strings. And to creating.  
Smiles, chatter, planning, then quiet within themselves.
 Peaceful, content in their own worlds.
 Creating. 

So proud of this young man who figured out how to tie knots using a satin-like thick cord. He wanted to create fringe : )

Can't wait to show their teacher!!!!
