Mr Davis’ 5th Class have been very busy in art exploring fabric and fibre. We first began by looking at the art of weaving which we learned is the process of making fabric or cloth by arranging yarns at right angles to one another. We practised this by weaving various colours of crepe paper through card to make a fun design.
Then we began our 3-week project of creating our own woollen weave. We measured and cut card to create a loom and wrapped white wool around the loom to create our ‘warp’. We then chose different coloured wools as our weft as we created different designs. It was very tricky at first but we had a lot of fun and are very proud of our work.
