Designing and Making with Textiles at Lower Key Stage Two: Designing a Simple Sampler
One of the trial units from the Nuffield Primary Solutions in Design and Technology. In this unit, children design and make a 'simpler sampler' using fabric crayons and patterns derived from handwriting patterns.
The purpose of the activity is to create modern samplers to display handwriting patterns. This could be linked to work on the Victorians, and will lead to comparisons between schoolwork then and now. Examples of samplers will help to generate the discussion.
