Sew far, sew good as pupils create bunting to brighten up Perse
9 Dec 2020
Beautiful bunting has been brightening up The Perse Upper courtesy of the sewing skills of the Stitch It club.
The group was restarted this year by maths teacher Rebecca Stratton and facilities administrator Claire Middleton to give pupils the chance to try out different craft techniques such as sewing, knitting, crochet and embroidery.
Despite operating in year group bubbles, Stitch It members have been able to combine their efforts to produce the colourful bunting hanging in the marquees next to the Sixth Form Café and the Rouse Building.
Perse Domestic Bursar Helen Parkhouse also played a big part in the project coming to fruition by helping stitch the pieces of bunting together ready to be displayed.
Ms Stratton said: “The pupils chose the materials and the different patterns and really enjoyed making the bunting, but they were most excited to see it hanging up in the marquees.”
