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.
Design a 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.
Try breaking down the tartan design in the small square into blocks of warp and weft colours to understand how the tartan is created, before re-creating it in the larger square. This is a challenging tartan worksheet!
