9MW Bird Project
The group agreed to work collaboratively on the collage. The project started with looking at patterns. They used a variety of printing techniques to create pattern and texture. Students then studied birds; collecting research and drawing from observation. The drawings were then scaled up and cut onto cardboard using the laser cutting machine. Collage techniques were used to cover the surface of the birds. They also used the patterns they had printed earlier in the project, a variety of textured and patterned paper, feathers and broken jewellery, to complete the birds.
