This provides a brief history of William Morris, the artist/designer at the forefront of the Arts and Crafts movement. An ideal subject when looking at textiles in art and design. Also an excellent cross-curricular subject linking with the Victorians in England (history).
This power point show the work of a group of children from two classes who studied William Morris and the Arts and Crafts movement in a four days project. We considered wallpaper, fabric designs and printing repeating patterns. We also looked at how the Victorians used decoration and patterns on surfaces, including china ware. We designed and made our own individual sketchbook to show our ideas and design objectives, and to present the cultural thinking at the time of the Victorians.<br />
Powerpoint showing several photos of Roman shields that I made leading into an activity where children design their own Roman shield based on certain criteria.<br />
The children went on to design their own Roman Shields and then made then with cardboard and painted them.<br />
Perfect for giving them ideas!
This is a key stage 3 project I created during my teacher training year. The project transforms recycled socks into sock creature - Sockies! A very cost effective yet rewarding project. The project has been thoroughly enjoyed by my year 8 pupils, each teaching rotation generating completely different and innovative ideas. The project has no boundaries and can be easily adapted to suit. I have attached a comprehensive scheme of work with lesson by lesson objectives and lesson plans, supported by an interactive PPT Have fun :-)<p></p>
A Powerpoint to support the sketching of 'winter trees'<br />
