What an asset to have someone with the experience of Kate Bruning come and teach the Year 7/8 students about soft materials technology. The class have enjoyed working in a medium that many of them are not familiar, producing some wonderful cutlery bags. They are now working on cushions with hand stitched Kiwiana symbols.
Before you are considered competent on the sewing machine you have to get your license!
Here we are preparing and sewing our cutlery bags!
In the photos above we are choosing our our Kiwiana silhouettes and preparing our blankets for hand sewing. Watch this space for photos of the finished products.
