On Friday we learnt all about the skill of ‘Hapa Zome’, a Japanese craft translated loosely as ‘flower pounding’.
We used flower petals and leaves to create patterns on pieces of fabric. We then folded the fabric in half and gave them a thorough bashing with a hammer! This caused all the juices to come out of the flowers and leaves, leaving a colourful pattern on the fabric.
We had a smashing time!
