Poppy workshop

The fourth lesson of the WWI project day was fine arts. Each student had to create their own poppy from fabric so that they could wear them on coats on 11th November. First the teacher explained the safety rule as they were going to work with lit candles. Then she gave the students detailed instructions how to make the poppies step by step. The students then cut round shapes from fabrics of various shades of red or purple colour, scorched the edges, stitched them together and stitched a few matching beads in the middle. In the end they stitched a pin on the underside. All of them (both the girls and the boys) were very handy and skilful and their final products looked awesome. Some of them pinned then proudly on their clothes.
