Whole School project based on Natures Treasures. Pupils gathered natural objects during a walk around thier local area bringing flowers, leaves, acorns, sycamore seeds and feathers back to school to add to their own textile artwork. Each pupil made an individual piece which where all joined together to create large wall hangings to display in each classroom.
Wet Silk Paper Making - using a range of fibres not just silk. I took a range of dried and gathered objects to use and asked members to bring along anything they would like to incorporate into their fibre papers.
There was a huge range of papers created, using many different colour combinations. The most successful were the ones that had considered this either before hand or during the making process.
