Handmade felt eggs

WP_000982Last art club before Easter and we just couldn’t resist the eggs. Liz brought along some rush for the children to weave into birds’ nests. She buys her rush from a lady in Bedfordshire who goes out to collect it in her boat.

We then showed the children how to used dyed wool fibre to create handmade felt eggs. Quite a few of them had made flat felt with us before and took a while to get used to going 3D. Once they got the hang of it though they quickly filled their nests and I think there were a few attempts at making felt birds as well.
