Make a paper woven heART using supplies easily found at home. Explore color, texture and pattern and enjoy the meditative process of weaving. In our first session, we will learn how to create a heart template and paper weaving warp. Afterwards we will add color and texture to our design. In our second session, we will choose and cut wefts. We’ll weave, create and finish our heart art. Open your heart to Art! 

Needed Supplies: 

  • Scissors 
  • Glue or glue stick 
  • Pencil & eraser
