Hello again, lately I've really been looking into weaving and seriously want to take a class, but I have another question. Is it possible to weave a 3 dimensional object on a loom? Please excuse how ridiculous this sounds!
My problem is that I've been feeling a little down in the dumps b/c as the hot weather reigns, my usual crafts, knitting and crocheting aren't piquing my interest as they used to. So I've been searching for a preferably textile craft to click with. I keep going back to looking at images and videos of handwoven things, but I keep on seeing the same rectangular shape over and over (I mean no offense to the amazing weavers here). Is there any way to spice things up? Have you or anyone you know ever experimented with another process?
It sucks being blue in summer, so any type of anything helps, a thousand thank-yous.

well, so far as I know, on a standard loom you can only make 2D, rectangular or square objects.  You could try cylindrical weaving over a tube or can,  which would (obviously?) give you a cylinder.  As for more 3D then that?  I'm guessing you'd need to weave and then cut and then sew.  Hope you get out of the downy dumps, and find something that gives you a lift.
