Exploring Ideas

Vanessa is working on a project that in part includes a personal poem, The image is part of many ideas that she is exploring, using wire wool stitched onto wire. She has made some others including paper pulp, plastic and's coming soon!

I love this idea, it has some exciting possibilities for this material.

Texture & Pattern Cont:

Staying with texture and pattern we looked at a collection of shells and star fish, looking at the patterns naturally formed. the children made studies of the shells and drawing in their sketch books before taking this into a project.

kicking off the new Term

After the long summer brake brains have slowed down to well a bit of a creative stop, this is quite normal and I feel it's my job to get the wheels turning again; It was a great term everyone was really fired up and worked so hard, contributed some brilliant ideas. I've been spending a lot of time looking at other peoples work and reading blogs.

This warm up exercise using Chinese news paper, exploring texture and pattern.
