I was thinking that it was time for Jack to have some new artwork in his room. When we redecorated it for his birthday the colour scheme changed from light blue, green and white to bright blue and yellow. He had some beautiful green marble paintings but now they just didn’t match.
So today we did some wool block prints to go in his new room. We had some timber off-cuts hanging around, I was going to sand them and make them into blocks but the shape turned out to be perfect for wood block printing. I wrapped some wool around each block and then tied a knot. Then just wrapped (somewhat) randomly around the block until it looked like a good pattern, and tied another knot. I chose three colours to match Jack’s room and after a simple demonstration, he was away.
Don’t they look wonderful?
