Blenheim Primary School Textile Hangings – Nov 2006

An exciting whole school project to create a multi media textile project!

We looked at Rousseau paintings and pupils imagined their own fantasy landscapes. Year 5 made paper cut designs, which were translated into line drawings in gutta and slick pens onto silk and calico panels.

Textile and silk paint backgrounds were skilfully painted by year 1, receptionsí wild fabric collage foliage became home for a wealth of felted animals, insects and flora all embellished with sewn detail.
