Treetop Figurines


For our final festive session of the term, we took a treetop turn.  Artist and illustrator Louise Pasquill provided an example of a doll, as a point of reference from which the group could develop their ideas for their own miniature figurines.

The children were given some skills, such as wrapping, threading, folding, braiding, knotting and tying, with which to decorate a wooden peg and transform it into a tree “minpin”, a nod to link our Christmas tree decoration to Roald Dahl’s beloved forest folk, the Minpins.

Using scraps of fabric, wool, scissors and glue, the group got stuck in immediately and to my astonishment had finished their pieces by the end of one session.  There were some dazzling costumes created on a miniature scale.  Here are some of the results.

From all of us at Children’s Art School, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Creative New Year!
