Makers Manual is a collaborative project between exciting makers and STORE STORE. These downloadable manuals are a practical guide to making at home for beginners and experts.
In this manual you will explore a fun and simple technique of weaving together scrap sheet materials, creating unique patterns and textures. Following the steps, you will design your own weaving strips and use these to create a one-of-a-kind woven structure. In this manual, we use a welcome mat as an example. However, you can use the same technique to create tapestries, carpets or artworks to hang from a wall.
