This is an online workshop on Zoom.

Are you wondering what to do with the cardboard from all those cardboard boxes that are arriving?  Here is a positive, uplifting way to recycle some cardboard and create a wonderful little, reusable, loom for weaving.  Using your handmade loom, you will then weave a little pouch.

Christine Anderson will show you how to make the loom and weave a pouch.  This loom is simple to make: ingenious, unique, and fun!  It’s a delightfully creative project for children and adults.  The Zoom class will provide instruction to make the loom, begin a weaving, and finish off.  After participants have worked on a pouch, they are encouraged to share a photo of their finished woven pouch with the Falmouth Art Center so that we can show the finished projects on our social media.

Click on the Materials tab to see supplies you should gather for the workshop. students should cut the cardboard ahead of time. It needs to be approximately 1 3/4 inches x 2 inches (or slightly larger).  The short end should be the “wavy” end:
