Circular Weaving :: Meditative Crafting to do Outdoors

This week in our Zoom workshop we showed participants how to make circular weavings on handmade willow looms with yarn and interesting bits of nature. This is a lovely meditative crafting activity that you can pop in your bag and take with you to do outdoors.

Below is a film from our online event, showing you the steps for making your own circular weavings from materials found around the home:
