Monster Workshop 2

Sorry for the delay with these pictures.  I have work pouring out of my ears at the moment and hopefully I will be able to catch up with myself at some point.
As you might remember I had two Monster making workshops during our activity week a short while back.  Well here are the pictures from the second workshop.
Many very original ideas!  We started off both sessions by watching about 30mins of Monsters Inc.  Sets the mood for the rest of the day.
This group were keen to try the fur and did well with a fabric that can be unforgiving if seams are not accurate.
Many of the designs were quite large and did not show any concerns about making the monsters in a day, which was a joy to see.
Some really interesting shapes and use of other components.
Another teacher had taken a group coastal walking and seriously injured her ankle in a badger/rabbit hole so she came in on the workshop and made the rather cute monster shown above.
Then we rounded off the day with a fantastic group shot.
So I think another round of Mega Monster Making Workshops next year too, I think.
I made the green one on Monday and on the Friday I made.......
.....by far my favourite so far.  Oh I so love making these!!!!!
I met my new tutor group today (they are still in Year 6 and will arrive with me in September) and I have an idea to make a tutor group mascot.  Not made one in years...I think we need to make one.  What do you think?  I thought I could have a little bit of a design competition within the group to get some ideas.

Then of course we would need to give it a name.....
