Anglo-Saxon weaving

posted in: Y4 News | 0

We have been learning how Anglo-Saxons made their clothes using wool and weaving on a loom.

Today we began to learn the ancient skill of weaving by using mini-card looms. We made our own ‘warp’ and have started to weave the ‘weft’ using a plain weaving technique (under and over).

Once we have mastered this skill, we will learn how the Anglo-Saxons used sewing and embroidery techniques to decorate their cloth to create clothes, wall hangings, and religious robes.
