After what turned into many questions yesterday, I just settled in. 89 degrees on the porch. Day dreaming. I warped the bead loom. Again. Nine threads. Maybe a little magic will help, I thought.
agedSo , with the thought of making a video of this simple process, I continued without doing that, imagining what I might say as I went, talking in my mind. Noticing even, that my methods really depend on the day. And then marveling on how much you can teach yourself if you take the time. And then, how personal preference might just lead you to a simpler and more primitive approach, because holding can be quite simple. And maybe you just need that. Have a good weekend folks. I have a lot to think about.
For Now, here is a simple beginning video from Considering Weave. My intention was not to "teach" weaving but really just to show some of the ways I go about it. This is how I taught the kids over here at the library. I will show some other more sophisticated approaches as I move forward. Just like sewing, don't pull too tightly or the width will be distorted. More about that later.
