Selbstgebaute Webrahmen

Schon seit längerer Zeit nutzen wir verschiedene Webtechniken, um Gürtel, Borten und Bänder herzustellen. Damit diese Projekte auch mobil sind, haben wir in den vergangenen Jahren mehrere einfache Webrahmen gebaut.

Der grundlegende Bauplan ist dabei sehr einfach: auf eine rechteckige Platte werden an den Enden jeweils zwei Dreiecke aufgeschraubt, die dann mit den Rundhölzern oben und unten verbunden werden. Das jeweils untere Rundholz (alternativ Vierkantholz mit Klemmbrett, um Bänder/Fäden besser einspannen zu können) ist dabei drehbar.

Natürlich ist das ein relativ primitiver “Anfängerrahmen”, dafür halten sich die Materialkosten in Grenzen und auch das notwendige handwerkliche Geschick ist überschaubar. Die Basisbretter der Webrahmen lassen sich wunderbar bemalen und so individualisieren.
