Heath Robinson Museum Visit for Year 3
On Wednesday 19th June Claire Linge, the Learning Officer for Children, Young Adults and Families from the Heath Robinson Museum, Pinner Memorial Park visited Year 3 to do a wet felt workshop. The girls learn the origins of wool and how it is coloured. They saw the tiny hooks and rough surface only visible under an electron microscope and how it is different from man-made fabrics which are smooth.
These hooks allowed the children to lay wooden fibres in different directions and create patterns with coloured woollen fragments. They then wet the wool and added natural soap. They massaged their creations under a few layers man-made fabrics to help to bind them together.
Their final pieces were very successful as you will see from these images.
