Artists use felt and wire to sculpt self-portraits

Girls on year four art day

Artists in year four have been using wet felting techniques to help create their own brilliantly colourful self-portraits.

Year four art day

All of our year four to six classes work on different creative projects with visiting art teacher Mrs Pennie Aspinwall throughout the year, with our year four children getting stuck into some very messy feltmaking.

Using everything from wool and bubblewrap to soap and water, everybody created what will be used as a textural background for their own self-portraits that they will sculpt out of wire.

“A lot of fun”

Evie Taylor and Anusha Prasad from class 4TJ had a great time:

We’ve had a lot of fun because we like the feel of the wool and getting our hands sticky!

We love how colourful the felt looks and can’t wait to use it on our portraits!

Older pupils in our year six classes worked with Mrs Aspinwall earlier in the year when they used a range of materials and techniques to create stunning gothic-inspired walls and windows.
