Japan ~ Kimono

Starting the Japan theme was a lot of fun as the class had so many gems to share with us. Here are some lavender fields in Hokkaido!

Our first project after the map was designing some amazing, traditional kimonos. Everyone had ideas about what they looked like so we wanted to copy the traditional style.

First on a large sheet of paper, we used sponges to dab various patterns and colours.

And then, we had to use our fine motor skills to weave the strips in and out of the pre painted kimono. It took a lot of concentration and was fun  for all.
