Afternoons: Fabric Art – Mandala Cushions
In the afternoons the children learnt lots about the use of pattern in Art. They designed their own mandala block which they painted onto fabric using fabric dyes. Then, on smaller pieces of fabric, they created 4 corner and 4 side blocks. With the help of Mrs McAdams the 9 pieces of fabric were sewn together by each child on the sewing machine.
Most of the children were able to design and make another 9 blocks for a 2nd panel. The 2 panels were sewn together to create a cushion.
