Today in the Studio Room we are learning a new skill. We are learning to make 3D paper sculptures. Today was all about creating a “fringe”
We each picked a piece of paper and a pair of scissors.
We learned that to create a fringe we needed to cut the paper half in strips, but only half way up the page, leaving a band. The higher we cut the longer the strip we created. We were very careful when using our scissors to cut.
It was a bit tricky at first to keep the band at the top and not cut the paper in half. But we soon got the hang of it and made of fringe snips in lots of different sizes of paper.
We made big ones
and even tiny ones.
Once we mastered the technique of fringing we moved on to a new technique of rolling and folding.
We used our fringed paper to create, fringe people, robots, lions, octopus, and funny faces.
We drew on our designs then folded the paper and used glue to keep the edges together.
We were proud of our finished results. It was fun engaging with a new learning experience and seeing where our imagination would take us today.
Next week we will be learning a new 3D paper sculpture technique.
