Peg Art

I have been interested in Cloth Pegs from my childhood days. We used to peg our nose and make funny faces (Ouch, it still hurts). Mother taught me that Cloths Pegs could be used for different functions other than for drying cloths in the sun. Now I find them as a fantastic material to paint on and create works of art. Because the pegs are wooden they can be finished in a number of ways; you can paint, varnish or stain them. The great thing about using pegs as a crafting material is that they are more or less uniform. You will find odd pegs that are a little shorter than the others. However this is infrequent, and can add to the charm of the finished item, adding character.

At Art Explorers, we had a good week producing art on wooden Cloth Pegs. Children had a lot of fun. Here are some photos.
