Embossing in 2nd Class

As part of our stories of Irish myths and legends in 2nd class, pupils took the theme of Tír na nÓg as the inspiration for their art. The boys and girls had a wonderful time exploring the craft of embossing. They glued wool to cardboard squares and covered this in tin foil. After smoothening down the foil they saw how the shape of the wool came through and they painted in between the lines.
