Thank you to Creative Folkestone, for running an Art workshop for a group of Year 4, 5 and 6 pupils this week. We worked with two local artists Tania and Emily who delivered the art workshop: FOLD, SCRUNCH, MAKE Wearable Sculptures. Emily’s background is in fashion design and this was reflected in the project.
As a group, our pupils brainstormed ideas of what a shelter is. They explored work by other artists and were shown some paper construction techniques.
Pupils took time to consider what the purpose of their shelter was? Who is it was for? Where and why? They sketched their designs before ‘hands on’ exploration of materials, construction and joining. Pupils made their sculptures (prototypes) either individually or in small groups. We shared and discussed the work at the end of the session. It was a brilliant morning! Thank you to all the adults involved in the trip.
