My Year 9 group have been learning how to construct 3D shapes in the form of Bags.
Above shows some of the completed bags. We used a basic patter, some of which I designed so that the foundation would work. Some element of certain success is needed so that a sense of achievement is gained to then have the confidence to move on to bigger and harder projects.
The students were then encouraged to add their own mark by changing elements of the bag, choose their own fabric and embellish them with hand made additions.
There is something about the colour combination of this bag that is really appealing. I would not have thought of putting these two together, but is one of the things about my job....the way the students surprise.
A shprt post today as I have to put the finishing touches to a Primary workshop tomorrow. A colleague and I have 63 primary students in tomorrow so a busy day ahead. I have done these days before they are really good fun and it all goes soooo fast.
See you later.
