New Starling Class Blessing

JUBILEE QUILT

Starling class were joined by textile artist Nicole Bates last week to take part in A Stitch Together: Whitstable Jubilee Community Quilt. This is a Revival, East Kent Mind community project.

 

The children worked with Nicole a cyanotype printing activity, using the power of light to create unique nature prints.  The children brought in leaves, plants, flowers and feathers and then used the sunlight in a cyanotype process to produce a cyan blue print on fabric.  The children also wrote meaningful words or a sentence about their picture.

 

The fabric pieces will form part of a quilt, once other local residents have helped sew the children’s words on and adding their own additions. Every Friday 10-12pm at Café 39 the community are welcome to go along to a workshop to help with the quilt. On Friday 10th June at Café 39, Oxford Street  (10am—12pm) there will be a community celebration with an unveiling of the quilt and the photographic story.  The quilt will then be a ‘travelling quilt’ visiting schools and community groups, before its final home in the new Revival when it opens.

 

 

Design & Technology

December 2021

This term Upper School have been designing and creating birdboxes. They started the beginning of term researching and measuring the technical details of their designs in their books. Mrs Hewitt with the help of a few family members cut and shaped MDF board into the correct sizes. The children then constructed and glued the designs and finally last week they were able to decorate the final project. Below are Starling class constructing their designs.
