This is quite a tricky exercise - to break down how the "real" tartan design is made up, then translate it into your own version in the square on the right. We have three of these worksheets to challenge the kids.
Copy the Tartan Worksheet 1
This "design a tartan" worksheet is based on a traditional tartan design - and it isn't an easy one! Use the smaller square to work out your own mixture of colours and try it out, the move over to the bigger square for your final version.
Tartan designs can be simple or complex, but they are all based on blocks of colour in the warp and weft threads crossing over at right angles to form different hues where they meet. Use this worksheet to create your own tartan design.
