Throughout term 2 students in grades 5/6 have been learning the traditional technique of sewing and making their own cushions using calico and assorted fabrics.
Here are just are few of the finished cushions created by our students.
The students have learnt how to make a loom and weave using assorted fabrics to create a wonderful Under the Sea background. Most of the students used cool colours of the sea to make the backgrounds. Weaving takes a long time to complete and all students were enthusiastic week after week.
After their excursion to Melbourne Aquarium students added sea creatures from fabric to the weaving background.
These are just a few fabulous samples of the artwork produced this term.
