Brianna here this look ice what u have done what is this is it an climbing board? or something, but it looks really fun to make and do.
Kia Ora Brianna,Thanks for your comment! We wish we could have climbed on it! The 'Awa' is a wall hanging or tapestry that represents the Omaru River that runs next to our school. Can you see some of the eels that live in the Omaru River sticking their heads out?
Mahaliya here from South Hornby School. This Looks so cool and creative. How did you make it and how long did it take you to make. What is it that you made.
Kia ora Mahaliya,Thank you for your comment! I was very impressed with the creativity our students showed in making the Awa too!We first cut up big long wavy strips of felt that represented all the colours of our awa, the Omaru River. We then made holes with a hole punch and sewed the strips together with plaited wool. Finally we made a frame by lashing three metre bamboo poles together and used wool again to attach the tapestry.I think it took us about eight weeks to complete. The felt was very difficult to cut and we had to fix the sewing over and over again!
There were pretty as work thank you for shearing this by Danielle Edmonds
Kia ora Danielle, We were very proud of our pretty work too. We now use our wall hanging to sit on as our mat in the Maker Space!
