In Weaving With Children by Ute Fischer we learn how weaving is a creative and practical art that's great fun for all ages and abilities. This original book shows you how to weave a wonderful variety of objects - special jewellery, a pretty bag, juggling balls, a snug scarf and even a scary spider in its web.
Some of the items have handy everyday uses (a phone pocket, a mug warmer and a coin purse) and some are just for fun (fairyland mushrooms, a dreamcatcher and an Easter hen).
Each enjoyable project is accompanied by easy-to-follo, step-by-step instructions and colour photos showing children how to weave with a variety of matierials from traditional wool to rags and plastic bags.
