Mount Rowan Rug
Term: 2 Year: 2019
Year 4 students focused on the area of Textiles to align to their ‘How we express ourselves’ Unit of Inquiry through the Line of Inquiry ‘Using nature to inspire or create beauty’ to develop a collaborative aerial interpretation of the Mt Rowan campus
The students’ inquiry into using the landscape as inspiration for combining elements such as shape, colour, and texture to engage the aesthetic senses was in response to contemporary textile artist Alexandra Kehayoglou.
Students explored a range of textiles media to experiment with techniques such as dry felting, pom-pom making and finger-knitting to communicate familiar territory.
