Each child created their own sea creature from merino wool. Wool fibres were laid down for the background, then all the individual artworks were pieced together to form one bold image.
Net was put over to keep the seascape in place while water was applied and soap rubbed in. The picture was rolled and rolled, until a sturdy piece of hand felted art was created!

Year 5 classes created 3 sea themed Felt Wall Hangings for their topic on water: starting with starfish studded shallow water and rock pools, deeper water and tropical fish and finally the deep sea with an array of turtles and sharks. The backgrounds were designed to blend from light to dark creating a single large continuous wall hanging if hung together.
