Congo Class Textiles

Children in Congo Class have been looking at the work of a living textile artist, Michael Brennand-Wood. This artist work involves taking photographs of natural objects like flowers, then recreating them in textiles, often using geometric patterns. He sometimes makes 2-d backgrounds too, to enhance his work. Children have been working in a similar way, using different dyeing techniques for backgrounds, then working with textiles on a willow frame. They then embellished their work with a range of decorative ribbons and fitments.
