Tetherdown Tapestry is the tops!
Tuesday 24 January 2017
Creativity is an important aspect of the curriculum at Tetherdown Primary School, so it was no surprise that one project – a large artwork made from an assortment of fabrics and tapestry collages – was no challenge for the school.
During a whole school Art Week themed around community and British values, all the children across the age ranges were able to create an aspect of the collage, including buses, trees, people, woodland animals and landmarks such as St James’ Church, Alexandra Palace, and of course the Tetherdown Edwardian school building.
It was then meticulously put together by one of the parents, and talented local artist, Emma Franks. Together with volunteer parent helpers armed with sewing machines and an abundance of haberdashery, the stunning tapestry was completed in six weeks!
Great job, everyone!
