Building and Weaving on the Earth Loom

This lively video shows the building, installation and weaving on an Earth Loom at a school in Maine under the direction of Susan Barrett Merrill, originator of the Earth Loom. Filmed by Lincoln Clapp of Maine Media Productions, it follows the day-long project culminating in a harvest weaving of materials from the students' Garden Project. Susan Barrett Merrill explains the purpose and uses of the Earth Loom, our new peace symbol (you'll see why!).

Also included with the DVD is a 16-page booklet with complete plans and instructions for two sizes of Earth Looms. Measurements, digging the holes, building and stabilizing the loom, and alternate methods of warping (stringing) the Earth Loom. This film will make you want to build one yourself!
