Fellowship of the String

We’re delighted to have re-launched our parents’ craft group recently, meeting online in the evening when the day is winding down and most of the children are in bed. Our first project is ‘Yarn Painting’ – an ancient craft originally from Mexico. Whereas the Mexicans used beeswax and tree sap to stick their string together, we opted for a modern alternative – the trusted Prittstick. It’s been significant for everyone to spend this time together and offer one another support through this difficult season of home schooling and lockdown. Parents have been working very hard recently and appreciate having the time to chat to other adults, as well as discovering talents for crafts they have never tried before!
