YuuMii Workshop 5 + 6 : Symmetrical stencil making and Silk Screening

It’s been an incredibly busy couple of weeks!

Lessons 5 : Vase Stencil & Silk Screening 

Stage 1 focused on Vase Printing, using symmetrical design and patterns to create post cards and T-Shirt Prints. We cut out our symmetrical shapes, traced, added detail and then traced this onto our make-shift Silk screens (embroidery hoops with silk) with Modge Podge on the areas that we did not want the paint to transfer onto.

Stage 2 did the same with their Crest designs.

The following week we used our dry screens to transfer the designs onto fabric and paper!

The children will add flowers, hand drawn to the prints.

They REALLY enjoyed this activity - I had to help quite a bit with painting the screens to make them crisp. I think that the next time we will actually silk screen properly. I had tried it with this method as i thought it would help the children better understand the printing process in a faster way. However, I do think that they are patient enough to work towards a better, longer lasting end result. 

Our family will use our screens to make presents for all the new babies in our lives! Looking forward to posting those images soon!

What does a Home School “Report” card look like?
MUCH more personal that any report you’ve ever seen!
As requested, a screen shot sample of our End of Year Report. I will go into more detail this year, maybe include outcome codes.
This along withour Daily Diary of what we did was seemingly enough for our interview to go well and give us a full year registration.
Hoping to improve and get a two year rego, next time, using our new app MixD to speed up the process and do all the boring stuff! Stay tuned for that!

Weaving Bridges Project : Week 2

Despite being ill, the children couldn’t miss a chance to work on this project with such a gorgeous group of people from our community. Noodle started he hula hoop weaving with all of her meters of finger knitting, and Dray finished his first round weave and started finger knitting.

The Aboriginal Heritage Centre had a wonderful representative come speak about National Sorry Day. A great and insightful experience, again!

We will be back tomorrow.

Open Road Learning Community for Teens is trying to remedy a very basic problem in education: our system of schooling are not design to reach all kids. Open Road works from the premise that the greatest learning happens when young people’s autonomy and desire to excel at something they feel is worthwhile is supported by strong relationships based in mutual respect and trust. Need support to grow and support more low-income students.
