Hessian Picture 05

Hessian is a sackcloth-like fabric that is generally used a backing for floor carpets. It is also great for using in the “Fabric and Fibre” strand of the Visual Arts curriculum. This is another in a series of lessons that can be done over a three/four week period with pupils. This uses leftover strings from the other hessian lessons to create a piece of art.

Hi Patsy, I think you may be able to get hessian from Hickeys. Otherwise try a carpet shop as the rolls of carpet sometimes come wrapped in hessian.
