Ravenswood Primary School Banners 2010-13

Over four years I worked with Ravenswood Primary School, creating a series of banners with the children of Year 1 and 5. The banners were funded by the schools active and very supportive PTA. The banners were made to reflect the heritage of the area the children lived in and to link it to their current topic. In many of the year groups almost 90 children worked on these banners creating the initial design idea, choosing the traditional textile techniques they felt would work well on the banners and of course, making the banner.

Over the six weeks, the children would learn how to use traditional techniques such as hooky and proggy matting, batik, embroidery, applique, fabric painting, weaving and knitting. These skills would then be used on their banner. It was great fun and the children were supported by their teachers, teaching assistants and parents.
