I've recently joined a public fair of bio-eco textiles, fibers and products, where I was wanted for a public demonstration of 4 harnesses weaving.
Here's my stand

well, I caught the occasion to try on the hard way my little project concerning the production of a little loom that everyone can operate: the T-Loom.
 I've tested it on the hard way, I said: I put my looms in the dirty, joying, happying and working hands of CHILDREN!

here's some photos:

I do like the T loom, simple, straightforward and clearly works.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Great little loom. I've seen looms in the letter "L" shape but I think the "T" shape would provide a more stable base.


Have a good day!

the kids must have had a blast doing this. It was always fun doing something the adults could do, even if it was a different size.

Thankyou all! It was a real pleasure to see all those kids weave and appreciate the textiles on the table.

The T style loom is a great design, and the perfect size for learning to weave. I will have to remember this for teaching.

I absolutely love this idea!  I'm going to share it with my camp organizers and hopefully get weaving on the menu for crafts!
