Weaving Your Own Pattern

With Penn Museum

The process of weaving allows people to take thin pieces of thread, yarn, or plant material and turn it into strong cloth and baskets. It is a simple yet sophisticated technology that developed independently in cultures all over the world. Join Museum educators to learn more about weaving techniques from around the world and then try some paper weaving on your own.
