Late summer and early autumn is a great time to experiment with nature arts and crafts. At this time of year the seasons change dramatically and we witness the emergence of a wide range of bright and beautiful colours.
In this short film we show you how to make a nature loom that captures the changing seasons. It's a really fun activity to do as a family or small group and helps you conenct with nature and boost your wellbeing.
This activity is great fun and will supercharge your wellbeing as it boosts your wellbeing and connects you with nature:
Get Active- talk a walk in search of the wide range of nature items you need.
Keep Learning- develop new skills as you go through the process timing, lashing and weaving.
Think Community- This activity can be done as a group project with others.
Practice Kindness- A nature loom makes a lovely gift.
Be Mindful- Weaving is an ancient skill that has been carried out for a long time. The act of weaving with natural materials is a very mindful process as each item can respond in different ways when handled.
Nature Connection: Noticing the changes in the seasons is a great way to connect with nature. Selecting, handling and being creative with natural materials develops a deeper connection between us and nature.
