Focus & Flow - KS3 Art and DT Projects

This term, our Key Stage 3 Art and Design Technology students have been focusing on Lino Cuts and Pewter Casting. Let’s find out a little more about these projects with Ms Williams and Mr Diver...

Lino Printing

Y9 Lino Cuts

The learning focus for these workshops is to engage the students with a traditional ‘crafting’ process, using lino and cutting tools, followed by a range of monochromatic and coloured hand-printing processes. 

The students develop a series of detailed prints using single cut and reduction stages. These printing workshops teach a range of mark-making skills and graphic precision using a traditional and handcrafted technique.

The students develop both their cutting and printing skills and enjoy some immediate and refined results.

Key Stage 3 Design Technology - BIS HCMC

Y7&8 Design Technology

Year 7 and 8 have been learning about manufacturing techniques in this Pewter Casting Project.  This focused on the materials ability to be reformed and reshaped by melting into a liquid using heat in the workshops and pouring it into moulds.  

Students had designed on screen for their client group and key ring, developed their designs into moulds, and cut these out on the laser cutter. The students have been in awe of their abilities to get some really cool key rings, which have been through a finishing technique to make them shine like jewellery. 

Laser Cutter

Fantastic integration of design skills on paper, computer design and manufacturing of moulds, and traditional techniques of casting metals. Just another DT success!
