Felt-making

Felt-making in Creative Courses with Years 3-6

We have been inspired by the spectacular explosions of fireworks on November 5th and  have used felt to explore this theme.

Now that we understand how to make felt, we will next develop a design on our own theme, for example 'Under the Sea'.

KEEP LOOKING!
