Weave Sculpture Project

Weave Sculpture Project

This is a collaborative 3d project complete scheme of work. You will find everything you need to teach this amazing project. It includes, 22 pages of powerpoints with step by step guides, visual resources, pictures and technical explanations It combines all the essential making and building skills needed for a creative and rewarding project. Each student makes a few wire frames to contain their artwork. Each square is a blank canvas where you can sew fabric and glue skins to the frame. You can embellish each square by adding interesting items, drawing and painting housed in tea bags, interesting weaves or anything else that’s relatively light. Once students have built their finished pieces they can fix them together to form complex 3d sculptures, wall hangings or stain glass artwork. All work can be stored flat until you need to complete the sculpture.  This collaborative project is a hit with all ages of students and is an excellent method of developing both 3d technical precision, broader creativity and independent working skills.
