I saw this page last week and immediately stopped everything to start my own branch-weaving projects. Traditional weaving can be somewhat tedious– there is a lot of slow, meticulous prep work to do before you can actually start– and while I find the repetition of weaving relaxing and meditative, I can imagine that it’s not everybody’s cup of tea. Branch weaving is another story entirely– within an hour you can hold a finished product in your hand.
The contrast between the branch and yarn make these inherently interesting, but combining varying weights and colors takes it over the top. It’s a great rainy-day project (provided you’ve saved a few dry branches) and is simple enough for kids to complete!
