6.7.16 Koru Team Wearable Arts Show

When Room 15 looked at the four seasons, we decided to jazz-up our winter clothes, as winter is a season where you need to wear layers and keep warm. Janine, our creative librarian, came up with the idea of upcycling, which is using old clothes to make new clothes. 
On the computers in the library, we did some research about upcycling to find out all the things that we could make.
As part of the inquiry process, we drew a person (ourselves) and labeled some winter accessories to go on it.
Then we sorted out the best materials from the old clothes that people had brought in that we could use to make our winter accessories.
We had a lot of help from Heather Turner and Janine Holcroft who spent quite a lot of their time sewing our items on their sewing machines.
In the last week before our Wearable Arts Show, we decorated our items. Mrs Hurren was great with the hot-glue gun to ensure that the feathers, buttons and bright bits stayed stuck on!
We made items like beanies, leg warmers, belts, arm warmers, cuffs, bags, scarves, vests, skirts, gloves and mittens.
Didn't Room 15 do well?! Don't they look good?!
Here are all of us as a class, dressed up and waiting for our turn on the catwalk.
