If you visit the 3rd floor at AP2 in the old building you will find a wonderful display (put together by Mr Ball and Mr Hall) of sculptural hats created by Year 7 in Design and Technology lessons in Term 1.
Students were initially inspired by the British hat designer Philip Treacy, adding further ideas from their own research.
It was a tricky balancing act, as is any design task; to think about materials, line, shape, structure and colour, whilst also getting the aesthetics right. Year 7 were extremely innovative in their choice and use of materials, utilising anything they could find to make their ideas come to life.
A lot of wire, tissue paper and skewers were used and the glue gun was never out of action! This is the first year we have introduced the project, and judging by the outcomes it won't be the last.
