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
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. 

Workgin together to share ideas.

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 favourite part was: showing my bat on the stage because everybody could see the creation that I made.

It was really hard when: the making because I needed lots of material to make it.

Something that really helped me was: having lots of time to make it and Deb helped me too.

Something new I learned was: wearable arts are something that you make and not buy from a shop. It is something you can make with material.

Kerri Thinks
Eshaan, you had a clear vision of what you wanted to create and you worked hard to achieve it. We spent a lot of time thinking and planning before we started making and this helped you to gather your ideas and create your plan. However, when you start making it can be tricky to stick to your plan.  You did your best to follow you plan, working hard by youself and with a little adult support at times to create your garment but you had to change your plan a little as you went to make it work and this is all part of the technology process (starting with planning, and then some creating, changing, creating and fixing). I am pleased you enjoyed showing your creation to the audience, you put in a lot of hard work and it is great to share!
