A quick catch up

Where is the week going?  It's already Wednesday and I can feel it slipping away!  I came back from teaching Summer School at Missenden Abbey on Sunday, and this is the first time I've been able to think about posting some pictures.

Ten students, and they got through a lot in one week.  Here is some of what they tackled!

We began by colouring paper

 
It looked much more interesting after it was dried and ironed.
Next, the fabric needed colouring

We had to leave it where we could to dry!  Thankfully it didn't rain all the time.
We began with small pieces in paper, then paper and fabric

After learning how to make lovely areas of texture larger pieces were produced.

I didn't make them cut them up, but most of the did as you can see.  I showed them how to avoid making this a disaster.....

This is just some of the work which we presented in a mini exhibition at the end of the week.  Working in a school classroom is not easy!  Well done everyone.
