-Tape looms are small box looms used to weave narrow bands of cloth known historically as tape.

Tape weaving was a common household task in the 18th and early 19th centuries. At this workshop, children (ages 8-13) will first learn the basic skill of tape weaving; then will get to weave their own small project, such as a wrist band or hair band. Instructors Ruth Konrad and Traute Ryan have years of experience weaving tape and in teaching kids this simple craft. Both are volunteers of the Mennonite Heritage Center. For years, Ruth has been a scholar and re-enactor of colonial textile and cooking skills. Through demonstrations and classes, she has taught the skill of tape weaving and other historic textile arts to students of all ages.

Suggested ages 8-13 years.
