Hapa-zome

Hapa-zome is a Japanese word meaning ‘leaf dye’ and is given to the process of transferring the natural pigments from leaves and flowers onto fabric or paper to create an image.

Firs and Oaks really enjoyed using the hammer to create beautiful pictures made of flowers, leaves and grasses. They concentrated really well, looked carefully at what they were doing , were fascinated with the end results…and were excited to take them home to show their parents!

We also did a little bit of counting and sorting, used the ropes imaginatively, did some finding and collecting, climbed and explored, used the  hammocks, used creativity with natural resources (making a gate to enter/leave an area!) and helped our friends. All in all, a perfect Forest School day.
