Paper Weaving

Paper Weaving
Today we found another purpose for our beautiful papers that we printed a few weeks ago- WEAVING!

I took the printed paper and sliced the "warp" within about 1/2 inch of the edge. I used this edge to mount the the "warp" to a piece of construction paper.

I took other printed papers and sliced them into 1 inch wide "weft" pieces.

We talked about the process of over under and that it was a pattern. We called our "weft" snakes and our "warp" grass. The snake had to weave in and out of grass, the next snake had to start in the opposite pattern... then we made the snakes "kiss" as we brought them close together and tight to the top! When all our snakes were in the grass we glued their tales down so they would not fall out!
