Weaving a Way Through

Courtesy of Claire Russell

I use weaving in therapeutic, creative and group settings. Two years ago, I discovered the pegloom when I bought one in North Wales. It was a very basic wooden loom. Small pegs/sticks are inserted into the top of a wooden board and warp threads are threaded through the pegs. The weft thread is woven in and out of the pegs. Weaving can be done using all types of yarn.The weaver blends colors and textures to produce a finished piece. The basic technique is simple, allowing the weaver to be as creative as they wish, or simply to weave using one ball of yarn.
