Harrisville Potholder Looms

Remember the good ol’ days at summer camp, weaving cotton loops on a square metal loom and proudly showing Mom and Dad the beautiful potholder you made just for them? Let’s bring the fun and excitement of weaving on a potholder loom to the Wilson Makerspace!

Weaving is an outlet for artistic expression as students mix and match colors and actually create new color combinations. Weaving encourages S.T.E.A.M. skills as it is a great introduction into sorting, shapes and patterns.


I wrote a DonorsChoose.org project for these looms but before I did, I made sure that it was sustainable. We make “yarn” and loops for the potholder loom by cutting up old T-shirts.
