Warp and Weft


Vocabulary: Textiles, braid, dye, elasticity, fabric, look, synthetic, texture, warp, weft, yarn


Children revisit the method of look weaving studied in Year 3 Beautiful Botanicals project. They explore the craft of weaving through time and learn about the properties of yarns, including how they vary in texture, colour and type.  They sort yarns into colour groups- warm or cool.  They make mini loom weavings and progress to learning how to weave shapes. Children use their weaving skills and knowledge of yarn properties to design and create a wall hanging!
