Woolworks Curriculum Guide Grades 3-8 Lesson 8: World Weaving
Lesson 8: Weaving Around the World
This lesson looks at the ways different cultures (including Native American) approach the art of weaving.
Paragraph from the Chapter
"Almost every country in the world has a tradition of weaving. Though no one knows for sure how the art of weaving cloth was developed, it has often been surmised that weaving followed basket making in the evolution of craft. Early people commonly wove grasses, reeds, and bark into vessels for carrying things. It was only a short stretch for someone to figure out that using pieces of twisted wool or hair instead of grass would yield a product that would be flexible and could be fashioned into garments."
