Make and create: pattern making
Hear the story of the Greek myth of Penelope with the Suitors from 'The Odyssey', then learn how to make your own tools to create printed patterns on fabric.
Handy tips and materials
Think of a story you might like to tell in print, or create your own version of 'Penelope with the Suitors'.
Here are some of the materials Bethan uses in the video:
- Potato – remember to always ask an adult to help you when using a knife or sharp tools
- Leaves or flowers from outside
- White cotton fabric – such as an old t-shirt or sheet – or you could print on paper instead
Find a space inside or outside and get ready to make and create!
