Unbe-WEAVE-able!Posted by Krissy Ponden
Is weaving an art or a craft? That was the question that sixth graders started with as they journeyed through the history of textile production and landed squarely in the middle of contemporary fiber arts. We learned that weaving can be utilitarian, fine art, or it can even be a powerful social statement as seen in the work of Sonya Clark. Students created their own looms using Adobe Illustrator and then printed them on wood using the laser cutter in the Makerspace. They then added the traditional warp and weft strings to create a weaving that complemented the looms. So is weaving an art or a craft? Sixth graders would say it is both!
