Wearable Arts

We have been learning all about design on our way to create our wearable art garment. We started with some challenges…
1. In teams create and build the tallest tower
We made a castle with a tall tower... what a team!

We worked together; sharing ideas and helping each other. We have learned that it is really important to design and plan our creations before we start. This means we all know what we are trying to make.
2. Build a shelter for Leo our class bear

We learned that it can be very tricky to work in groups and we all have to take turns.
3. Work together to create a costume for 1 member of our team to model. 
Here we are in our costumes!
We remembered that it is important to design our work before we start. We also learned that we have to be careful with our materials, newspaper and tinfoil rip quiet easily.

We are going to use what we have learned to create our wearable arts garment.

Success Criteria:

  • Research and find my inspiration
  • Design and plan my garment (How I see things)
  • Follow my plan to create my garment
  • Create a garment that is going to last
  • Create a piece of art – an idea or a story or message
My story
My label it

My favourite part was: doing the sewing on the pouch 

It was really hard when: making my mask because it was really hard cutting the holes for the eyes.

Something that really helped me was: having my plan and Isaac's Grandma.

Something new I learned was: learning what was a wearable art and what was a costume.

Kerri thinks
You looked carefully at images of the bat and used these to help you design your garments. You did your best to follow your plan, working hard by youself and with only a little adult support at times to create your garment. Masks can be very tricky to make... remember you can try to tighten the elastic to fix your mask or make bigger eyes. Part of technology is trying something and then fixing and trying again. You learned some new skills, like sewing and it was great that we had loads of adults to support us all in our learning!
