September: Milling Flour and Flower Prints

On a crisp Autumn afternoon at Cody Dock, we thought of travelling back in time with a magical tool “The Flour Milling Wheel”.
The children experienced, enjoyed and learnt what it really means when parents and teachers say, “Good things come to those who wait and persevere” 😉.
A lot of effort went into grinding the flour, but it was totally worth the time, experience and of course the sheer delight, when we all devoured the very yummy pancakes 🥞… was a sight, you get to see , through our pictures.
The group also collected leaves and used water soluble crayons to create leaf imprints.

July: Making Recycled Paper

In July, we met and did some paper recycling. We put together a lot of magazines and newspapers, immersed them in water and torn them to make a pulp. Then with some frames, we created our beautiful papers. Some children decorated the papers with flowers while the papers were drying under the hot sun.

June: It’s all about knitting!

In June Newham Natural Crafts joined World Wide Knit in Public Day! It was a fabulous opportunity to create some shape and to see everyone’s knitting skills at work. This even was open to everyone, knitters and non-knitters. Those who did not know how to knit with needles learnt from those who did, and those who only knew how to knit with needles learnt to finger-knit! It is a beautiful feeling to see people who meet at Cody Dock for the first time share skills, experiences and laughs together.
