BEST circle weaving: students are weaving around the loom itself, not yarn looped thru the slots. Students don't weave the entire loom full either, which fits their attention span and my tolerance for fixing mistakes. Only prob. I see might be the flimsiness of the construction paper, maybe use colored cardstock, printed thru the ink jet printer for the lines.
First, students removed strips of burlap on all sides to create fringe. To create a space to weave, students removed two strings of burlap. Then, they used plastic needles to weave their yarn (the weft) over and under the warp. I glued small dowel rods to the top of each student's weaving and the following class I showed them how to add a handle and fringe at the bottom as an option.
