Year 10 Hand-Made Paper With Flower & Seed Implantation

Last week the Design and Technology Product Designers practiced making paper by hand while encasing seeds inside. This was something Mrs Barden first tried in the department last year after the lockdown with this years year 11s using dried pressed flowers inside. Below I will give you a step by step on how to do this process yourself and what tools and equipment you will need.

What you will need:

Elastic bands, a sponge, a frame and mesh of some kind, a an old food processor you no longer use for food, and finally, some items to encase into your paper for decoration. You will also need an absorbent towel as this can be a very messy process.

Here are some of our students outcomes:

Here is a photographic step by step of the process:


Updates On Our Growing!

Mrs Barden has brought in some of her crops that she began to plant throughout the Summer holidays for us to continue cultivating and we have begun to plant our radish this week using some old used paper cups as pots. Fingers crossed they will have progressed by next week for another update!

Welcome Back All, From the D&T Department!

Welcome back all!

I thought I would take this time to refresh your memory on where were were at with our little growing green project at the end of term.

Below are a few images taken on the last day of school. We are happy to announce that they are still going strong and coming to the end of their fruit producing season and were looked after by a member of staff while we were off for the summer break.

We are currently in the process of planning our next seasonal crops and we cant wait to share with you how it goes!

We think our winter crops will be mostly winter greens, Calvo Nero kale and possibly some bulbs to brighten up the food room.

Stay tuned for our next post on Year 10’s recent paper-making practical where they implanted seeds and pressed flowers into their own hand-made paper.

Have a great week everyone!
