The students have spent the past couple of weeks learning how to make repeating patterns, developing their own designs then using them to create different patterns.
Connie cuts a quick, inexpensive corrugated cardboard stamp to trial a design.
Elisha created a design based on a building then translated it into foam stamps, one the mirror of the other so she could make a greater variety of patterns.
She chose one of 17 different patterns she could make with this stamp to print on a heavier weight cotton.
Charlotte is developing designs based on the pineapple.
Sarah is exploring pattern making with a design based on lines found on rocks.
She made quick foam stamps of the design in the positive and negative and the mirrors of both. These 4 stamps allow her to create a vast number of different patterns.
Connie’s humming bird wing design is proving to be most successful.
She has produced many pleasing and promising patterns with it.
