BRANCH WEAVING



Stick- or Branch weaving is the new craft descending on blog posts and Pinterest. Not much is needed for it, a nice v-shaped branch, some wool or yarn and off you go.





This is the result of my first attempt on branch weaving. It was not easy to do, the warp was slipping and twisting, and I wanted to give up in the middle of the work, but I am glad I did not. It is beautiful, it even has an artistic touch. I used variegated wool in autumn colors - after all it is October! :-)

I’ve never known such a craft as branch weaving. Your talent seems to make you feel willing to challenge new art. At first try, it could have been hard, but your accomplishment must have given you confidence. Lovely autumn colors on the branch! Have a nice week, Yael.
