We invite the Austin & Texas community to come together (virtually) to weave stars for the One Million Stars to End Violence Project – Texas – and to continue to grow star weaving communities throughout Texas to support the One Million Stars project. It is not necessary that you live in Texas to participate.

We encourage you to watch the Star Weaving Tutorial before attending a workshop: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNc_RYPPfbM
Supplies: Any of the following materials can be used to weave stars: ribbon, paper, newspaper, wrapping paper or native grasses that have a wide flat leaf. Anything you have available at home should work. As long as the lengths and widths of your 4 strands are the same, you can weave a star! In the star weaving video and PDF tutorial, the ribbon stands are 22 inches x 1 inch. You will also need a pair of scissors. Each star is woven with 4 strands.
