Today I showed the class how to do a simple weave. They all thought it was going to be a piece of cake but they soon changed their minds. Its not as easy as it looks. Check out what they learnt.

To make a plain weave you go over, under, over, under (Matt)
You need to keep your paper stright (David)
There should be no gaps. You need to push each strip up closely to the last strip you just weaved (Dakota)
You need to glue the ends to keep it in place (Campbell)
It looks like a Chess Board (Jahzia)

Hopefully they remember these key points when we teach Room 12 how to weave on Wednesday.
