Woven Bag

 At this workshop we showed participants how to set up a two-sided loom that enables you to weave in a circular fashion, creating a tubular shape that can be made into a bag.

We also show how to line your bag, how to make and attach a handle. All of the materials for this workshop can be easily found around the home.
