1 Weaving Wonders Presented by: Christine Schebilski And Sue Ambrioso FAEA Conference October,

2 Students will learn the process of weaving, and explore the importance of textiles in their lives. NGSSS 6- 8: VA.68.H.2.2 Explain the impact artwork and utilitarian objects have on the human experience. VA.68.S.1.4 Use accurate art vocabulary to explain the creative and art-making processes. VA.68.S.3.5 Apply two-dimensional techniques and media to create or enhance three- dimensional artwork. VA.68.S.2.2 Create artwork requiring sequentially ordered procedures and specified media to achieve intended results. 2

3 Get motivated! Think about the fibers in your clothing, linens, and other fabrics. Each one is made from a textile of several different fibers that are interlocked together. You will be making a sturdy textile of interlocked newspapers. 3

4 Journal Explain, in your sketchbook or journal, what life would be like without woven fabrics in your life. Which ones seem most important? For example: clothing, bed sheets, towels; what other textiles could you not live without? Make a list of your top 3 and explain why they are your favorites. 4

5 Fibers Slender, threadlike materials that come from animals (silk, wool), plants (linen, flax, cotton), and chemicals (nylon, rayon). 5

6 fabric textile Cloth made by knitting or weaving threads together. An artwork made from cloth or fibers, such as yarn. 6

7 Loom A frame or machine used to hold yarn and other fibers for weaving, usually at right angles to one another. 7

8 Warp- In weaving, the vertical threads attached to the top and bottom of a loom. Weft- The threads that cross over and under the warp fibers on a loom. Weave- A process of interlocking thread, yarn, or other fibers to create a fabric, usually on a loom. 8

9 Pattern Variety Repeated colors, lines, shapes, forms, or textures in an artwork. Pattern is a principle of design. The combination of elements art, such as line, shape, or color, to provide interest in an artwork. Variety is a principle of design. 9

10 Materials 1 newspaper per weaving Paper clips Optional: paint, feathers, glitter, twisteez wire, beads, multi-media for decorating 10

11 Procedure: Basket O Open newspaper. Use all pages that are all the same size and paper type. O Fold large pieces down into about 1” strips (The amount depends on the size of the basket you want to make. To create a 4 x 4 x4 basket, use 12 strips.) O Lay down all of your warp newspaper strips O Cover the top half with a heavy book to keep in place as you add in the weft strips. O Use a ruler to make sure that all sides are even. O Once all of the weft is woven into the base, crease all warp and weft pieces at the edge where they overlap. Folding/ creasing now will benefit you later as you try to get the sides of the basket to stand up. O Paperclips will help hold pieces in place as you work. O Lastly, tuck edges in and take out all paperclips. Some pieces will fold under while others folder over. O Decorate as desired. 11

12 Procedure: Paper Mat Weaving O Open newspaper. Use all pages that are all the same size and paper type. O Fold large pieces down into about 1” strips or 2” strips. ( The size depends on how wide and thick you want your final weaving to be. The amount depends on the size of the weaving you want to make. To create a 6 x6 weaving, use 12 strips. You can tape strips together to make a larger piece.) O Lay down all of your warp newspaper strips. O Cover the top half with a heavy book to keep in place as you add in the weft strips. O Leave a margin on all 4 sides that is twice the width of your newspaper strips. O Paperclips will help hold pieces in place as you work. O Lastly, tuck edges in and take out all paperclips. Some pieces will fold under while others folder over. O Decorate as desired. 12
