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. 
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 off my wearable art on the stage.

It was really hard when: getting the tinfoil to stay on the lids because it kept falling off and ripped easily.

Something that really helped me was: Deb because she helped me tie the lids to my hat.

Something new I learned was: that wearable art isn't just a costume that you buy from a store, you have to make it.

Kerri Thinks
Technology can be tricky. You thought about glow worms and how they look and tried to plan a garment to match your ideas. As we started making you realised that it wasn't going to work quite as you wanted so with support we came up with a new plan. From here you had a clear vision and worked hard to create your garments. That is how technology works, sometimes you have to do loads of designs and makings and redesigns before you get what you want. Fantastic learning!
