In y3 today, as part of their studies about India, we used our woodblocks to print onto fabric. We designed and made the woodblocks last week from balsa wood - a thick piece with cut balsa sheet glued on.
The children were encouraged to line up their blocks carefully to ensure a regular repeat pattern.
An overview of some of the printed pieces of fabric.
The intention is to display them by draping them around a simple silhouette, so as to resemble an Indian woman wearing a sari.
