This exercise was to create structures from strips of paper, card and other materials.

paper weaving
two sheets of painted card interwoven

I like the middle one because of the texture and the way the weft breaks up the image; and the bottom one, with the effects of transparency, and the fragments of words.

    Your paper weavings are great – I love the first one, how you can still see the design of the maroon paper, even after it has been mixed with the yellow. The wavey ones look good too!

    The plastic bag one is a great re-use / recycle idea.

    Thank you sharing and inspiring. I’m a retired math-teacher and try and like to create with my little grandchildren. At the moment they are still too young but in no time this will be a very cute project to make.
    Wishing you the very best and sending you kind greetings from the EU (A).
