THIS IS YORKSHIRE ART& DT WEAVING PROJECT YEAR 3 WITH LINKS TO ARTIST DAVID HOCKNEY

Find out how to create a rural landscape using a weaving technique and introduce new art vocabulary with the help of David Hockney's work. The tree weaves are simply stunning when finished and make a beautiful display in school. The ideas are from various websites however I have turned them into 5, one hour, lessons with objectives and links to the curriculum.

I have created this resource to use alongside the new Design Technology 9-1 to cover the various types and scales of production. The power point I have created is over 30 slides long and you can change / adapt to suit your specific classroom needs. In the power point we cover areas such as Methods for manufacturing, Lean manufacturing, Jigs and fixtures, Templates and patterns, Steam Bending Machines, One off, Batch, Continuous, flow diagrams, Automated large scale production including advantages and disadvantages. I really find this power point useful and I hope you do as well.

This is a fantastic resource that we use int he DT department as display material. These are drawings mainly from architecture and nature and how we turn them into creative products using CAD. Examples include a car, violin, CD rack, architecture and nature just to name a few. This resource was developed over a few years with A* exemplar materials of modelling and CAD. The power point is 170 slides of drawings in both freehand, modelling and CAD visualization and will enhance any wall or display immediately as they are colorful accurate representations of design ideas.
