Fibre art can take on many forms like weaving, quilting, collage and sculpture, and is best defined as “any artistic presentation with fibre as the main medium.” That leaves things pretty open, so I decided to make these collages monochromatic so kids could work on their colours. I also included bubble wrap, the first thing I found lying in my recycling junk box. It turns out to be really easy to sew, adds great texture, and works nicely with any colour grouping. And if the urge to pop becomes overwhelming, virtual bubble wrap is the place for you.

Quilt making is the wonderful process of sewing many sections/patches of fabric together to create a whole. Making just one patch is a great way to introduce children to sewing, and provides a fun, creative outlet with few rules. It’s also an opportunity to scavenge about for interesting textiles to use and recycle.
