In all my years of teaching and making art I'd never made one of these before. I got the idea from a colleague in London and though I modified the technique I was more delighted with the outcome than I could ever anticipate. Once finished I rushed next door to proudly show a colleague what I'd done. She also couldn't believe something so effective could be achieved so simply. Now the girls have seen it and they all want to make one. It's one of the many things I love about this job; rediscovering the simple pleasure in making things.
