WORD FILE: LOOM,handmade.
Weaving is a handcraft that is used to create a piece of textile (cloth). Cloth is made by crossing two sets of threads (wrap and weft) over and under each other.
A machine use to weave cloths is called LOOM. There are handmade (personal use) loom and power loom (used by industries to mass produce bedding, clothing’s and other fabric items).
Types of Weaving
The following are different basic types of weaving:
- Plain weave: the weft goes over one warp and then under another warp. It is the simplest weave.
- Twill Weave: in a twill weaves, the weft passes over several warp threads to produce a diagonal pattern. Twill weave produces a strong, sturdy fabric like jeans.
- Satin Weave: the weft can pass over as many as twelves warp threads so that the diagonal line cannot be seen. Satin weave produce a smooth luxurious cloth. Satin wean easily break.
Plain weaves can be used to weave mats.
Materials used for mat weaving
- Coloured paper
- Decorative materials
Steps in mat weaving
- Cut either a piece of coloured paper or piece of construction paper into a square and fold the paper in two equal halves.
- Draw a vertical lines. Between the paper before you cut.
- Cut evenly-spaced slits starting from the folded edge and continue up to about a half inch from the opposite edge.
- Open up the paper.
- Cut coloured paper strips in a way that the stripe is longer than the length of the square’s side.
- Weave one of the paper strip horizontally across the slits going over and under the slits.
- Push the woven strip to the top and start with another one.
- Weave the second strip in an opposite pattern as the first. That is if the first strip goes under and over the slits. The second paper strip should go over and under across the slits.
- Weave more paper strips in an alternating pattern until your paper weave is full.
- Flip the whole square weave.
- Apply glue at the end of each paper strip and fold the excess length of each strip inwards and press to glue them in place.
- Flip the square weave again so that the folded ends are hidden at the bottom.
- Cut a larger piece of paper weave.
- Glue your paper weave on top of the frame.
- Decorate the frame with any of these materials such as stickers, buttons, beads or other decorative materials.
