It is important for teachers to facilitate a positive sense of belonging in the classroom. Improving students' sense of belonging has a wide range of positive benefits including lowered levels of bullying, increased academic achievement and improved mental wellbeing and happiness. This research explores to what extent implementing a class wide textile art project could alter students' perceived sense of belonging in the classroom. Students completed surveys assessing belonging before and after the collaborative textile art project which were used to compare students' pre and post belonging scores. Students need to feel connected with their peers and find a sense of belonging within their school community to thrive, a collaborate textile art project may be a way of improving their belonging in the classroom.
