The No-Waste Weavers!

By Leslie Ray (Outdoor Provocation Specialist)

Thanks to all those who have contributed to our supply of plastic bags. You can still drop them off at the “Donation Station” on the year 5/6 class veranda.

The year 5/6 class is well underway in learning the skills to recycle all of those donated plastic bags from plarn into reusable items. Last week, each class member began attaching a plarn framework onto hoops in preparation for learning the weaving process. In today’s Arts / Design and Technology session, the weaving began for most students.

It was wonderful to see everyone so engaged and creating such wonderful designs. I am so impressed with their “practise” weaving technique that I can’t wait to see what other designs they produce! Stay tuned!
