Readathon and loom making
Posted on November 16, 2016 | By cdavieswoolsery
Yesterday was a busy day in Alminstone. Throughout the day, we took every opportunity to read for the readathon to see how many minutes we could read in total. Hopefully, we will have raised lots of sponsorship to buy new books for the library. In the afternoon, we used the skill we have learnt about square lashing to make the frame of our looms. Working together (in the rain), we took turns to lash the four sticks we cut last week to make a rectangular frame. We found it difficult to get the lashings tight, but overcame this by persevering.
