Craft Bombing of Saltoun

Children from all classes recently decided to take action to brighten up their village. Lee suggested that they take part in Voluntary Arts Scotland’s week of celebrating craft by “Craft Bombing” the village. With support from staff and parents a plan was hatched to weave, chalk and decorate. On Friday 9th May children headed out into the village armed with fabric, chalks and pictures. The school walls and bus stop were graffitied with chalk drawings; butterfly and insect pictures were attached to fencing and strips of brightly coloured fabric were woven through railings. The vivid displays have attracted a lot of attention from the local community and all the children have asked to do it again even bigger next year.
