summer felts

more pics of the nuno felt panels that been working on with school children.  The ladybugs panels are being made by the youngest in the school - they wound short lengths of wool around their fingers before carefully placing the spots onto their ladybug.  The best bit was adding water and soap to make lots of bubbles.

The idea of the project is to create a lasting piece of artwork with a special teacher who is retiring this year.  She is getting to help each class to create a felt panel.  The felt panels will ultimately be hung in the woodland den at school.


The leaves panels have been made by the 8 year olds.  Each child made a leaf.  They decided altogether the leaves look like a stormy day in the woods, or that you could imagine walking through the woods with leaves on the ground.

 A little boy wanted to make a rowan leaf as his middle name is Rowan.

Next week we will be making a panel of snails, and a bluebell wood...
