As part of end-of-year activities at her local school, Lis Mertens ran a workshop for a group of Year 6 students. After a demonstration of the basics of feltmaking, the students made a sample of felt. They then chose to use their sample to cut and sew a mobile phone holder, to make a bracelet or to make another piece of felt in another design. The students were busy all day and very motivated and engaged in their chosen project. See for yourself their designs and wonderful colour combinations.
