Through the projects and features, children (and many adults as well) learn the delights of making woven projects and at the same time develop a connection with weavers throughout the world and through the millennia - not only is weaving an utterly contemporary activity around the world, but its origins have been traced, through story, myth and archaeological evidence, to the Bronze age and before. Among the enticing projects in Kids Weaving are Map People (exuberant paper figures with clothing woven out of old maps); Friendship Bracelets (woven using an early Native American technique); Fairy Garden (a small moss garden surrounded by a woven stick fence); Rag Doll Warrior (made on a cardboard loom); as well as a fashionable Chenille Scarf and funky Handwoven Shoelaces (both made on a loom constructed from simple, inexpensive plumbing parts sold at general hardware stores).show more
