Weaving in High School

 Hey Art Teachers! 

Have you explored weaving with your high school art classes?   I definitely don’t have the space or budget for a lot of looms in my classroom, but I did purchase a tabletop Melissa and Doug Multi-Craft Weaving Loom.  

It’s really fun!  It totally looks like it marketed for young children, but this is a well-made and flexible loom that can be used in a secondary classroom settting… just toss out those tapestry pieces and don’t let the teenagers see the 5 year old on the box!

A great idea for the high school classroom (since I only have one) is to set the loom up for students with the warp.  Show them how to do the weft in a tutorial.  Then, allow early finishers to add a few rows to a group weaving!  Just provide a variety of colors and textures of yarn for them.  

The loom usually sells for about $38 but right now, you can get it on sale on Amazon for just $29.50
