In order to best support educators, the Children’s Museum & MuseumLab will be offering frequent Virtual Professional Development (VPD) experiences around arts and making. Engage in hands-on making, have thoughtful discussions and collaborate with other formal and informal educators. Act 48 hours available. 

Join their next upcoming session on Weaving & Geometry!

Wrap and weave alongside other educators and museum professionals and find ways to connect the process of weaving to geometry concepts. Experiment with a variety of warping and weaving techniques using different shaped looms and weaving patterns. It’s helpful, but not required for participants to have a basic understanding of weaving.

Participants should have on hand:

  • Prepared loom (learn how to make a cardboard loom here—experiment with making a larger size loom)
  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Pencil and paper
  • Yarn or other weaving fiber (2 or more colors would be helpful if accessible)

Optional items:

  • Alternative weaving fiber (fabric strips, plastic or mesh bag, shoelaces, flowers, herbs)
  • Tapestry needle
  • Ruler
  • Embroidery hoop
  • Flat circle object for tracing (plastic lid, roll of tape, etc.)
  • “Y” or “V” shaped tree branch
  • Frame loom
