Derwentwater took part in a coronation themed felting workshop with Julie Harrison, who spent the morning helping us learn how to felt.
The children could choose from a crown, orb, sceptre or King Charles’ stamp for their design, and some even added in jewels and Union Jacks for extra detail.
We are really impressed with how hard they worked and the designs they made. Have a look through the pictures below of the felting process and our final masterpieces. Don’t they look brilliant?
Every Picture Tells A Story
This half term, Derwentwaterwater are looking at the meaning behind art. They will analyse the intentions of Banksy; make ink symmetry prints inspired by psychologist Rorschach; tell a story using emojis; use drama to recreate a poignant war scene and be inspired by the ceramic work of Magdalene Odundo.
Inspired by Rorschach
In this lesson, the children learnt about abstract art and the inkblots that inspired Andy Warhol’s ‘Rorschach, 1984’. They then had a go at creating and interpreting their own symmetrical ink drawings.
