Recycling materials allows students to see possibilities where others may see limitations. This project turned donated 45s into weaving looms. This lesson teaches students to create a radial weavings, tie knots and shows how weaving does not have to be linear.
Nothing makes you feel “wise” like being asked more times than I will admit is writing, “What is this thing?”, “How does it even work?”, “You mean, you couldn’t listen to music on your phone?” Shock. Total, jaw dropping shock, when I told my students I did not have a cell phone until my third year of college.
Their work turned into one impressive installation!
