Easy Weave


With a load of projects lined up using wool and felt, we decided to start with something simple; the Easy Weave. https://www.flickr.com/photos/manualscanigo/6319686953/in/photostream/
All you need is a shape of cardboard and some scraps of yarn.
Cut some nicks around the cardboard edges for grasping your yarn strands.


We bunched our yarn strands into their own piles to prevent tangling!


Handiwork is the basis of Waldorf education.
There is great value in using your hands to create, but also to develop the motor skills necessary for hand-writing.
Loads of advanced projects can be found below!
