80th Anniversary Wall Hanging

As well as the Olympics held last week, students have been working together to create a textile wall hanging to display as part of our 80th anniversary celebrations. Each student was asked to make one square for the wall hanging, which will then be stitched together by Mrs Jolly to make the whole piece. Students were asked to design their square using the themes of birthdays, Rhyddings and our local area, and were also asked to use a variety of techniques to make their square, such as applique, stitching and using fabric pastels. We have a lot of different ideas, some of which are shown below.

  5. Hi Teah and Michael,

    I’m glad you like the designs our students have done. I’ll take a photo when it’s all stitched together so you can see the whole wall hanging.
