Art after school: The Feast, feltmaking

Because the autumn leaves are so perfect this week I brought a selection along to inspire our felt making. The children spent a while observing the leaves and making sketches before starting. A lot of the children had made felt with me before and after trying a various hairstyles and facial hair with the wool roving they got stuck into the activity using coloured fibres, yarns and felt scraps to create some carefully observed and some imaginary leaves.

These photos are of the leaves before the rolling process . The children finished the session by making invitations to invite their parents to their feast exhibition next week.
