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 have been learning all about design on our way to create our wearable art garment. We started with some challenges…


Our tower is the tallest, but we didn't finish in time.

We worked together; sharing ideas and elping 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!
Workgin together to share ideas.

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

Reflection
My favourite part was: making my garment because we got to make what we wanted and add what we wanted. 

It was really hard: to keep my mask on when I walking and dancing. It kept falling down and I couldn't see very well.

Something that really helped me was: my mum and Heidi's mum helped me with my making

Something new I learned was: you have to make a plan and a design before you start making.

Kerri Thinks
What great learning Awhina, design is a very important part of the technology process. I am pleased you enjoyed the making and working with Heidi's mum and your mum. It is great to share your learning with your mum. 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.
