Spinning thread with Mrs Oliver

The Kestrels were very lucky to have Mrs Oliver explain the processes involved in turning wool into cloth. They have been learning to investigate the history of Avening and the importance of the wool industry. In art, they are learning about textiles and enjoyed finding out about how natural dyes can be used to change the colour of the thread. They were surprised that the colour of the plant used to dye the thread did not always result in the same colour of the finished thread.
