Winter trees

Recently I visited a local primary school to teach a group of nine year olds how to make felt. The teacher had chosen the theme of winter trees and the kids set to with a will.


Not all of the pieces were captured in this shot but enough for you to see a good selection.


Only one person chose to do a complete silhouette and I really like the starkness of black on white.


There’s something of an apple tree in this but actually it’s a berried holly tree. What impressed me was the use of  different colours to add shading and life.


The pine tree was my favourite of the day, it has real presence, who wouldn’t want to shelter there?
