Weaving hack – what if you don’t have a warping board?

Here’s how I used to wind my warps when I first started out weaving. It’s a warping board that is simply made from hooks screwed into the wood of a cabinet. I have included a photo of how I create the cross too. Even if you don’t have hooks, you don’t have to wait – you can use pretty much anything to wind a warp. Table and chair legs, door handles, or wooden spoons shoved between books in a bookcase! Don’t let lack of equipment stop you from weaving, go for it and have fun! Happy weaving!

If you want to try out weaving on a four shaft loom but can’t afford to buy one, check out our instructions on building a four shaft table loom using cardboard and bamboo bbq skewers here.
