Wheat Weaving Tutorial: Fairy Harp

Wheat Weaving Tutorial: Fairy Harp This fairy harp is a wheat weaving of my own design using spiral and Welsh fan plaits.

Harps are a common symbol among traditional wheat weavings. Most wheat weaving harps are very similar with just a few alterations here and there. Because they’re so tiny, I think of them as something the fairy folk might use, hence the name of my fairy harp wheat weaving here.

When doing the spiral weaving, I spiral to the left because I’m right-handed, but if you’re left-handed, you may want to spiral to the right instead. Either way will work as long as all your straws are spiraling the same direction.
