I didn’t realize how popular loom crafting is until I attended a loom craft session at SM Bicutan last May 23 and realized just how engrossed kids were in doing this. Oh, and adults as well. Women . . . and Men!
Seems simple and easy to learn, but it’s for people who have that extra time and patience. How one craft can have such phenomenal attention over another one, I will never know. It’ s basically about looping bands over each other, and just repeating that pattern until you have a length long enough to wind around your wrist and finger. Perhaps what makes it interesting is the creativity with color variations and looping methods. I think there’s a fishtail, inverted fishtail, and a dragon weave variations, . . . I think those were the terms. Admittedly, I had a hard time following instructions so I left it to my 6-year old daughter to take over. I was impressed with the finished products because of the colors and designs.
Thanks to SM Bicutan and @ilovehues for a loom starter kit and educating me on how it’s done 🙂
