First Day of Weaving Camp!
I always love the first day of a camp where students meet each other and they begin learning a new fun skill!! None of the campers (except for one) had ever done any weaving before today.
But they all took to it very quickly. In this picture, you see two of the students weaving with waste yarn. We always start a project with waste yarn and soon move into the more fun and colorful yarns.
All of the campers got quite far on their scarves today.
After break time today, we learned how to dye yarn. They had all different colors to choose from and it will be so fun to see what their yarn looks like when it is dry.
Don't you just love those stylish aprons?!! They have to wear aprons because the dye will stain clothing. I made these out of trash bags :o)
Look at that bright, yummy yarn! I really like the contrast with the dark colored warp.
One of our students finished weaving her scarf today. Woo Hoo!! She hem stitched and finished the other end and now she just needs to finish up this end. Tomorrow she will learn to warp and also learn some specialty stitches along with some beading if she wishes.
