The children in the Skylarks class have been enjoying their creative sessions with Cassandra.
We started the project off by exploring the story of wool as a material. Cassandra showed us her Blue-Faced Leicester sheep and how to do carding, spinning wool, weaving and dying wool with natural dyes such as Alkanet, Chamomile and Madder.
We learnt how to finger knit, do wet felting, needle felting and weave wool and willow. We explored various natural materials to create our own characters using wood, clay and wool.
Our aim is to create a puppet theatre with puppets that move to be able to tell stories such as the wonderful stories from the Mabinogion which we have been reading.
