Wattle & Daub

This week we discussed the differences between rich and poor Tudors. We also looked closely at the features of Tudor houses, which are distinctly different from Victorian and modern day houses. We learnt that Tudor houses were made using Wattle and Daub – a way of making walls , in which a woven lattice of wooden strips called wattle is daubed with a sticky material usually made of some combination of wet soil, clay, sand, animal dung and straw. We had a go at making our own wattle and daub panels which we are hoping to paint and put together to make a model house once they have dried.

4S loved getting their hands dirty!
