Collaging Workshop at MVPL

I introduced the students to paper weaving - weaving strips through paper warps. Warps in different colors lay next to a pile of colorful construction paper strips. The strips acted as weft or filler which go through the warp ends. "Over then under, over then under," I repeated. " I know," a student said, "I just follow the pattern." After the first row was completed the next strip went through the warp in the opposite pattern to lock-in the strip above. One student used a yellow warp, and yellow and red strips in his paper weaving. He said it reminded him of ketchup and mustard!
