Creative seaside cushions

During their textiles lessons last term Year 8 designed a cushion based on a beach/seaside theme. They learnt various decorative techniques such as tie-dye, appliqué, machine decorative stitches, hand embroidery and embellishing.

They have worked really hard to produce a wonderfully creative piece over a ten week unit.

Well done Year 8!
