John Colet needlework club for 6th class

Since the beginning of the year, children from Sixth Class have formed a lunchtime Needlework Club, and come together every Tuesday for about forty minutes to learn the Art of Bargello Work , under the aegis of Mrs. Donald and Mrs. Layton, with the aim of producing beautiful inserts into cushions. Here are some of the finished products (more still to be completed watch this space!)
Bargello is a type of needlepoint embroidery consisting of upright flat stitches laid in a mathematical pattern to create motifs. The name originates from a series of chairs found in the Bargello palace, Florence, which have a “flame stitch” pattern.
