Last year I stumbled across the way Mr. E (@http://www.artwithmre.com/) and I wanted to try it. They turned out so great I did it again this year! The students really liked designing their cardboard looms. We began by breaking up a 9" circle into eight equall parts and filled each with a complex pattern. I asked them to color in half of the pattern to have a nice contrast in colors. Then we strung the warp string and began weaving. It is a little tricky for some to get the weaving started, but once you get going with it, the weaving is a snap. Thanks to Mr E for sharing his lessons!
