We're all about the workshops - we set up an activity day at St Mary's Primary School in Walthamstow. We asked the kids to design something first, on scrap paper taped to the floor, which they would then craft onto a square of fabric using bits and bobs.
This worked really well, we actually got a four-year-old to realise the worth in designing something before you make it. However, as Danny (aged 6) puts it; "it's not too bad if you don't draw it first, because the picture is still in your head."
We stuck the squares up as they completed them, forming an improvised quilt.
