Bring your natural curiosity and craftiness into FREE live learning sessions by Penn Museum educators, on Facebook! Join these 30-minute sessions—perfect for elementary to middle school kids—to dig deeper into world cultures, archaeology, or anthropology with demonstrations of hands-on projects you can try at home!

The process of weaving allows people to take thin pieces of thread, yarn, or plant material and turn it into strong cloth and baskets. It is a simple, yet sophisticated technology that developed independently in cultures all over the world. Join museum educators to learn more about weaving techniques from around the world and then try some paper weaving on your own.
