Design Technology - textiles (weaving and sewing)

Our focus artist this term has been Britta Marakatt-Labba. A Swedish textiles artist, Marakatt-Labba strives to tell stories about the daily lives and journeys of the Sami people.

Linked to our whole school topic, 'Epic Expeditions!' and inspired by Marakatt-Labba's embroidery, we created panels of weaving and sewing to represent the journey of a river.

 

We prepared our weaving cards by adding the warp threads followed by the weft, using blue and white wool and ribbon - this represented the water. Some of us even chose to create beautiful sunsets!

We then used running stitch to add felt details such as fish, mountains and plants.
