Woven Wonders

Woven Wonders 005
Something I've wanted to do for ages ... get children weaving into household objects. But space and storage issues so often intrude into workshops that I had to wait until a full day with a large room and lots of children. And then we got going. Linking to the British Tapestry Group exhibition in the Stables Gallery, my 5-8 and 8-11 year olds explored a range of approaches to weaving and wrapping, including a collaborative project with objects ranging from lampshades to bins, and umbrella and a spatula. Here is our final masterpiece!
