Sewing fun


You may have heard me saying that in Visual Art I run a sequential skills based program. A perfect example of how this works can be seen in the sewing that is happening in many grades at the moment. Our gorgeous Preps have been learning about threading needles and are just having a bit of an experiment with how sewing works. The Year 2s are now using much smaller needles and are working on evenly sized stitches and spaces. The Year 3s are extending their skills with some new stitches such as backstitch and the Year 4s are using much smaller needles and adding some beads and sequins.

From Year 1 onwards we always start our sewing units with a sewing sampler so that we are able to practise and troubleshoot any problems before working on our final piece.

You will be able to see some of these amazing artworks in the upcoming Art Show on the 7th and 8th of September!
