Two School Felt Projects

The last two weeks I've had the pleasure of working with 90 lovely children at Brookburn Primary School on a minibeast project (above) and 90 equally lovely children at Chorlton CE Primary School on a 'Musicalitree', as the Headteacher likes to call it (below).

The minibeast project started with the first class - 6 to 7 year olds making lots of prefelt and then a minbeast for themselves, the second class - 8 to 9 year olds cut flowers and minibeasts from the prefelt  as well as making a minibeast to take home and the last class - 10 to 11 year olds did the same as the second class.

Here are some of the minibeasts the children made for themselves.

And here"s the finished felt wall hanging that the Year 4"s put together.

I think they did a fantastic job. They were very enthusiastic and worked really well together to decide where everything was going to go.

Then over two days this week I worked with Years 3, 4 and 5 at Chorlton CE Primary School.  The wall hanging is for a new arts and music room and as well as looking great will hopefully help with the acoustics in the room. Again I think it's amazing how creative children are and think they've produced a great piece of wall art.

And here they are together with my little helper who definitely thinks they are real masterpieces!


  1. They look like they must have been loads of fun to work on with kids, they did a great job :)

  2. Thanks Zed, the kids were brilliant! It was great fun but it's always nice when it's felted and everything has stayed in place!
