Tags for my GCSE kids


Well it is with heavy heart that I say goodbye to my GCSE class this week, tomorrow in fact. They are by far my best ever class and most talented bunch of individuals.Collectively they have been an absolute joy to teach, picking up every technique with gusto. I will never forget the first time we did free machining and their love of painting with thread, or when we went to visit the local Uni and they were all set to teach them to free machine on dissolvable film, when one of them said "Oh we do this all the time!". So for you Year 11 Class of 07 I have made a tag for each of you and they each have something from your theme, Joe and Kristy flowers, Sam triangles, Cathy butterflies, Tasha Lightening etc. Try not to make me cry too much! Take the world by storm and reach your full potential.

Oh I love these!
I'm wondering how you did the sort of 'speckled' look on the background..it sort of looks needle punched I think.

Carol, I so wish I had a teacher like you, when I was in school (many moons ago) your enthusiasm must have a huge positive effect on your students

Dy, this is how I did it - I free machined Kunin felt and then blasted with the heat gun. Then I put crystal organza behind for a bit of glitz! Love carol t

How lucky they have been to have had a tutor with the enthusiasm you have for your subject. I bet we'll be reading this same message this time next year for the Class of 08 if you have anything to do with it!

Lucky class. I adored my needlework teacher as I'm sure these children love you. Other people's enthusiasm rubs off. They are so lucky and I'm sure they will love their tags for ever.
