I will admit that sometimes I create projects for the students based on an overabundance of materials.
There are SO MANY bags of fabric scraps in my store rooms that have been donated to my school and I just don't have the heart to throw them away.
These Year 5 students were due for a textiles-based project and created these fabric bowls by cutting and pasting layers of fabric over plastic bowls. The process was the same as papier mache, only using strips of fabric, therefore, the more strips and layers of glue the students added, the stronger the completed bowl was.
Once totally dry the plastic bowl was popped out and the top edge of he bowl trimmed with scissors.
