Textiles in Nursery and ASP
We worked together to create a circular woven rug from recycled materials. A frame was created using a broken hula hoop and strips of fabric from the Homerton Children's S.C.R.A.P. Project .
The children then chose the fabrics they liked and took turns to weave in and out of the mesh, building up the design from the centre. We talked about the texture and pattern of the fabric and described what our actions using vocabulary such as 'over', 'under', 'push' and 'pull'.
Weaving was a new skill for most of the children and they found it tricky at first but by end of the session everyone was able to do it really well! They are on display at Forest Site.
