I have been back at school teaching this week and loving every minute of it! I am teaching 2 afterschool groups and 1 art class during the school day at 3 schools in Lincolnshire through CFBT. I am working with all different primary school age groups and this first week they all made the jelly roll beads. I’ve had 38 students this week and now there are 38 bags of wet wool beads hanging on the clothes horse in my mum’s conservatory smelling of wet sheep. They came out really well and it was lovely watching the children experience the magic of felting.
The photos show the beads that they made and them hanging in the conservatory. Next week we will be making the beads into keychains, necklaces, bracelets and learning to make some wet felted flowers.
