Want to make a friendship bracelet? We’ll show you how!
You make the bracelet by tying lots of small knots. This creates a pattern. You can have lines, zig-zags and even arrows! This is a type of weaving. Lots of artists use weaving to create their art.
One artist who did a lot of weaving was Anni Albers. Here she is using a large machine to create big textile patterns.
Anni Albers studied weaving and textiles at the Bauhaus art school in Germany. She believed that textiles are a type of art and as important as painting or sculpture!
Anni travelled a lot in her life. She spent some time in South America. These trips influenced the patterns and designs of her textiles. Have you been somewhere which has inspired you?
