My students really like to do weaving, I want to do patterns (not just
stripes) or perhaps pictoral (trees, animals)
Any good sources to refer to.
Am I thinking too complex for them, any suggestions would be appreciated ,
On the cheap : We make small weaving looms from oaktag and xerox
I have a grid that they paste on and use to cut the "teeth" to the correct
depth on each end.
