Term: 4 Year: 2006
After being inspired by the “Golden Tapestry” made for the Queen’s Jubilee by the children of
the Commonwealth, I decided to embark on tapestries with grades 3 & 4 that would depict our newly established
vegetable garden at Rosanna Golf Links Primary School.
- We began by researching aerial view photographs and the children designed their tapestries from this viewpoint.
- The garden bed was painted on to Hessian then the planting was created using stitching and appliqué of
fabric, buttons and beads.
- Final detail of birds, insects, gumboots etc. were glued on using leather scraps and pistachio nut shells.
- Students enjoyed the challenge of the project and produced some fantastic works of ‘growing art’.
