Having the scale plan on the wall allowed the students to see what we were working towards.
We began by making all the prefelts ready to cut into shapes for the buildings.
The wall plan was useful for tracing the outline of the building sections preparatory to cutting out. Using a white prefelt for the background, we could then start laying on the pieces.
Building it up piece by piece.
Three main colours were chosen for the building – pink, purple and yellow with red for the roofs. Orange was chosen for the new part of the building and grey with sparkly angelina fibres for all the windows.
Time to start adding detail.
Down to work. Working in teams to roll both with hands and then feet.
It was worth all the work.
It’ll be hung by the means of tabs on the top edge. You’ll notice these aren’t evely spaced so that if, in future, the school would like to hang it as a triptych it’ll be a simple process of cutting it into three.
The students were a pleasure to work with and this may have been a large project but it was fun.
