Art, Design and Technology
Inspired by previous tributes for Armistice day, pupils in Third Year Creative Industries all came up with their own idea for the memorial and then decided as a class to combine a few of these ideas to create their final piece. They created a poppy motif that was then cut out of wood using the laser cutter; then, using a hand cut template, they spray painted different poppy shapes onto the wooden poppy. The whole class made a number of three dimensional paper poppies that were then attached to the spray painted wooden base.
