Key Stage 3 get to design handbags during textile sessions!
Our Key Stage 3 pupils have started their handbag project which involves designing and creating a handbag of their choice.
During their textiles lesson pupils got to explore and research about the various range of bags, the different features of each bag as well as the many fabrics that could be used.
Children have learnt about the origins of fibres, using fabrics to make a bag and simple ways of joining and decorating fabrics together. This led on to evaluating a variety of existing bags to learn about different types and styles as well as ways that fabrics are joined and fastened.
Over the coming weeks the children will get to apply the skills learnt and develop their ideas in creating their own handmade bags.
