montessori practical life activity, circular art weaving
this is all about floral patterns.. concantration, patience, rythm, control and coordination.
it is not practical, but i love the idea of making something fleating like a life of a flower..
when the flower is done, string can be tied on the nail (like this knot made at the beginning)
and displayed for a while in a class, like a picture frame, maybe even in the botanical area,
where one can recognize 'the blue flower' from a real world!
lily pad! so simple
about details and materials -
made of pine, hand sanded by dad, brass nails, tapestry blunt point
embroidery steel needle, small skeins of cotton/viscose and linen thread.
(there are two sets of these available,
if you are interested, please, let me know!)
happy spring, dear friends!
