Exploring Textiles

We piled our desks high with remnants of fabric that Maree has gathered over the years. We touched and gently rubbed the fabrics against our cheeks and described what we felt. We closed our eyes and described what the fabric that our partners selected for us

This is what it felt like

shiny, soft, hairy, woolly, hard, sparkly, rough, see through, scaly like a fish, fluffy like cotton wool 

We cut up the material into small squares some of the material has pattern on it and some of its plain. We made sets. A set a pile of something all the same.

We worked with our partners from first class to finish our flag designs from last week. Preparing the fabric before we started pencil pushing made all the difference!
