The Rainbow Week
I've been helping out at 'Our Lady's of Walsingham' Primary School. It was their Art Week last week. I taught Class 5 and 6 how to make 'Kusadama' Flowers. They all mastered this origami structure quite well. Each class had a designated colour to work with. However, once the headmaster had seen how beautiful the Kusudama structure was he wanted them to be multi-coloured.
In the class the children produced the individual flowers, I constructed the flower balls at home, they took four hours to assemble. I am so proud of the work the children produced. And even more impressed by the amount of children who went home and badgered their parents for coloured paper so they could make one at home.
