Easter treasures

Are you hunting for some non-chocolate goodies for the holidays? Come into the school front office and see what treasures are on offer from the parent craft group.  We have lovely felted eggs, rainbow ribbon streamers perfect for dancing through the garden, and chalk eggs to brighten a footpath or two…

Fleecy Clean

What a great day to wash a fleece, in the last days of summer/ first days of autumn.  I think it hit 34 C, and our soft soggy fleece will be dry in no time…  Almost blinding in the afternoon sun..

We also turned our hand to some wet and dry felting… ( and finished a few more guinea pigs)… Thanks everyone for a colourful day full of sunshine.

This Thursday 19th March we will be playing with wonderful wool as we wet felt, needle felt, wash and card some lovely floaty fleece to make all manner of things.  Feel free to join us for some or part of the day at Amelia’s house in Jenna drive, just across from school.
