Class 2 has been busy in handwork class making their own Etoile - a handwork case that holds needle pins, scissors, and a crochet hook. They will use this for the whole of their primary school years. Supported by handwork teacher Elizabeth Ellean, the children have learned satin stitch to embroider their initials, blanket stitch for the edges, and dolphin or running stitch. One focus in handwork class is to make things that are not only beautiful but very useful and long-lasting for the children to use in the years to come. Sustainability, beauty, and practicality all rolled into one.
