Weaving workshops for kids… Have fun learning to weave !

Presentation :

Soierie Vivante offers weaving workshops for kids (7/12 years old), it’s a good way to entertain them while learning.
After an educational visit in Mrs. Letourneau’s former trimming workshop, children get the chance to weave on little looms adapted to their size, choose the colours of the threads and go back home with their creation!
Creative session: each child is the owner of what he/she made. This activity stimulates concentration, coordination and children’s imagination...

How does a weaving workshop work?

Discovery of a canut workshop!
When the children arrive inthe trimming workshop, they discover the inside of an authentic canut workplace, where the weaving looms rare 3, 60 meters high!
A demonstration of the looms allows the children to understand the methods they will apply during the weaving workshop: the crossing of the warp threads and the weft threads.

A bit of practice now!

Children become familiar with their little looms. They choose the colours of the threads and the coordinator shows them the creations they will be able to make (bags, pencil cases, balloons...). Every child finds their own technique and rhythm. The coordinator will assist them and advise them. Each child makes a unique piece!
