Some prep projects for 7th grade
OK so this may seem a little on the young side for a project for 7th grade, but I want them to get used to wet felting and dyeing before we make their slippers...so they are first going to make little inchworms getting used to manipulating the wool, and then a little pouch for the inchworm to live in...the pouch is wet felted around a smooth rock, which I am hoping they will be able to find by the river (if they go on a walk with the main lesson teacher...). Then, we will dye it with food dyes...we are using raw roving. I think that class will really enjoy it...we shall see!
