We made hessian pictures last week. Hessian is a very itchy type of material. We all started out with a square or rectangle of hessian. We pulled out some strings from the edge to make a fringe. Then we pulled out a few pieces of string from the square to make a pattern. Then our teacher gave us a sheet of paper to do a rubbing of the hessian pattern with any colour crayon. After that, he gave us a piece of coloured card so that we could stick our hessian pattern on it. We made another picture for homework with all of the strings that we pulled out. We thought it was great fun doing art with the hessian.
