Thanks very much to all the pupils and friends of St. Mary’s National School who have left comments on the blog or emailed me with their feedback. Here goes with the responses so far ………….
My brother Manus is taking part in this art project. I think they have had great fun, by looking at the photos. I would like to make a sun and a forest. Hopefully the junior classes will get to do some too. Cian, 6 on 14th March, brilliant on the computer!
I am flabbergasted how lovely these turned out. Amazing the designs they created are all eye striking. Good work. Deb Seeger, well known American textile artist
I had great fun on Wednesday last. I enjoyed getting the soap all over my hands. I will have great fun the next time. Manus 3rd class
I thought the felt was really cool. I liked getting my hands wet we all enjoyed it. It was very good. Peter 4th class
Ciara really liked the colours of the wool, Niamh enjoyed rolling the bubble wrap, Shannon thought it was hard work but it was worth it in the end and Angelina liked the patterns at the end. Ciara, Niamh, Shannon and Angelina 4th class girls
I was thinking that the felt was going to be boring but it was really fun. Dylan Mimna 6th class
I thought the felt was interesting but I thought it might have been better. Pamela
I didnt really enjoy making the felt but I liked the end result. Kayla
I enjoyed rolling the felt with the bubble wrap and I would like to make something 3D. Clodagh
I thought it was difficult to pick a few colours. I thought the rolling was fun and my end result was cool but I would like to make a 3D item next time. Sinead
I really liked the felt making and it was better then I expected. I would like to make an eagle because it is my favourite bird of prey. Matthew 6th class
I thought the felt making would be boring but it was fun. They have all dried out and they look really nice. We were talking about the wall hanging thing today and I think it will turn out really good. Looking forward to seeing you again. Killian from 6th class.
Our felt pieces dried and they look good. We enjoyed it a lot and we liked getting our hands wet and soggy and soft!! Afterwards our hands were wrinkly. Looking forward to seeing you next Wednesday. Concon and Curley 6th class.
and the last comment…… I am not sure who wrote it but thanks! Hi Nicola Brown, I think that your felt was the best of all.
