Felting Fun with Amy Neville
Posted on July 3, 2012 by kilmartin
Class teacher Lisa Cinnamond said it had been a fantastic experience for the children and those in the support class had enjoyed the hands on, tactile nature of the workshops. As well as learning a new artistic skill, pupils were able to discover which insect species can be found buzzing around at the SNH Moine Mhor nature reserve, watched over by the Giants.
Amy showed pupils how to use wool and water to create a colourful summer backdrop and a range of insects using the felting process. Ladybirds, purple hairstreak butterflies, marsh fritillary caterpillars and golden ringed dragonflies are some of the fabulous creations which are now on display in the school.
