Year 8 Textiles Mini  Monster -  Miss Thornton/Miss Waddilove

 

Task 5 – Final Monster Design

Using your design ideas created from the roll a monster activity and Jon Burgerman produce a final design for your Mini Monster. Draw it A4 size, add colour and annotate to explain how you could make it. What materials will you use to make each section of your monster? What tools and equipment might you need for the textile technique? What techniques could you use to add the monster’s features? Estimate the size of your product (height and width).

 

Task 6 – Practical  

Depending on the resources you have at home have a go at making your monster.

The basic equipment you will need: different coloured fabric (old clothing will do),

sewing machine or needle and thread. You could use additional items for decoration:

buttons, pompoms, wool, pipe cleaners, embroidery thread, sequins etc…

 

Here are some links to help you along the way.
