It is not so easy to get a warp on the loom

closer look cooperate winding onIt takes strength, cooperation and agility among other things. I’m at the John Campbell Folk School this week teaching 12 to 17 year olds how to weave on a floor loom – the traditional way. Lean back

The kids are on their second day of tedious work but they follow directions without complaint. I give them chocolate and promise that we’ll get to the fun part tomorrow.
