First pics from Gaelscoil and help, my Internet connection has broken!!!

A very brief post today…… I'm busy working on my project with the Gaelscoil and unfortunately an essential connection to my modem has broken, NO Internet at home for a few days. Thanks Dawn for putting a message on Facebook saying I was out of cover, I've just logged in for a minute to upload this picture via a hotel's connection, cheeky! This gives a good idea of the scale of the wall hanging I and the pupils are working on, it's huge!!!

 

Craft in the Classroom project almost over

Our wall hanging after the first rolling We had an excellent two sessions to wind up my contact hours at Drumlea for  the Craft in the Classroom project.  The first of the images are up on Flickr and over the next few days I will blog about things properly and get some more images online.  Just as a taster here is a picture of our wall hanging after 3 hours of stamping, kicking and rolling in the large plastic mat but priorto going through the washing machine and more hand rolling by me!  At this stage it had not shrunk much but all the fibres were holding together well and it was ready for some more ‘serious’ fulling!!
