This week was art week at the lovely Rokesly Junior School in North London. I was invited to work with children in years 3 and 6 who are interested in and skilled at knitting. To practice keeping an even tension we made some yarn pictures on the theme of seasons. These were made by wrapping irregularly shaped strips of card and then fitting them together to create a landscape. The activity was inspired by Jan Messent’s work.

The finished pieces will be exhibited in the art week gallery. Great work!
