Wallpaper Workshop for Year 2

Year 2 spent a busy afternoon designing and creating their own wallpaper last week at Mrs Gates’ workshop in Sharcott.

The children were shown how to draw a simple design on a lino tile, and then carve it out using a special cutter. This resulted in a few sore fingers, but all continued undeterred. They then used the tiles to print a regular pattern across a large sheet of paper, creating some wonderful wallpaper designs . There were lots of brightly coloured hands too.

Many thanks to Mrs Gates for her expertise and time.
