Can the kids work out how this real tartan design is created, weaving the warp and weft threads together? Having worked it out, copy it across into the square on the right.
Copy the Tartan Worksheet 2
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.
