HAIRBAND DESIGN: BRAIDING
Today, we learned various braiding/knotting techniques and incorporated beading. We’ve experimented with different materials like gold/silver chains and satin/nylon threads to creating new patterns and textures using these techniques.
Children were able to use their creativity to create their own design using the skills taught in the class.
BAG CHARMS: CHARACTER DESIGN
Today, we learned how to design our own character and making a plush (bag charm) for Back to School bag packs.
We learned how to design a character by learning how to draw different facial expressions from the “The Big Book of Cartooning” and developing our own narrative around the character.
T-SHIRT DESIGN: SELF PORTRAIT
Today, we learned how to express ourselves by illustrating our self portraits using different sensory materials like fur, felt, silk, and chain. Elena used words and hand written typography to express herself. Lastly, we designed our own graphic pattern by collaging different shaped fabrics.
