Straw Weaving Instructions
You will need:
wool (some 8 ply)
sticky tape or masking tape
What to do:
Cut each straw in half.
Keep 5 halves.
Thread at least 1 metre of 8 ply wool into each straw.
Leave about 1-2 cm poking out the top of each straw.
Stick the wool to each straw using a small amount of sticky tape (cellotape) or masking tape. (Keep the tape very smooth)
Lay the 5 straws side by side on a flat surface and tape them together near the bottom.
Tie some wool to one of the end straws and begin weaving ( take wool in and out between the straws). Don’t pull the wool too tight!
Gradually push the weaving down .
Remove tape when several lines of weaving have been completed.
To change colours, tie new wool onto the end of your first colour.
