Textiles for Children: Weaving

Mother of two primary aged children, this mum wants a LibGuide to help her to homeschool her children in the area of the Arts, specialising in Textiles.

Welcome

Weaving

Weaving is traditionally a technique used to create fabric, however, in The Arts the variation of materials used is limited only by the imagination of its creator.  

Reference to Curriculum:

Students make artworks using different processes to express their ideas, observations and imagination.
