Tapa Cloths Design

As we are learning about art this term, class one and five got the chance to create a Tapa cloth design, to those that don't know what a Tapa is here is a link/ Tapa designs  . A Tapa design is bark cloths made in the island of the pacific ocean.

What you will need to make a Tapa design brown or white paper,red die, crayons and that's about it. The first thing that you need to do is draw your design on the paper, if you don't have any design ideas you can get some inspiration from the internet.

Anyways after you have finished drawing your pattern on the brown or white pieces of paper,you now need to colour it with your crayons, it is best to use brown, black and yellow crayons. Now that you have colored your Tapa designs. It is time to die it,when you die it just use the Technic that you use when you are painting, when you have finished wait a few minutes for your die to dry and there you go you made yourself a Tapa design.

Tangle Pattern

“Today we are going to be creating a tangle pattern” Miss Paget said to the class.Whats a tangle pattern you may ask, well a tangle pattern is a Maori weaving.Here is link to show you /tangle pattern

The first thing we had to do to create the tangle pattern is to, think of a pattern,It was hard thinking of a pattern so I got some help from the internet. About five minuets later an idea pop from my mind,and started putting my idea onto a piece of paper.

After we finished drawing our pattern we had to pick 3 or less colors to color in our tangle. Puawai and I didn't no that we had to use 3 colors so we used about 7 or 8 colors.It took some time coloring my pattern but I got there in the end.

Overall I enjoyed making the tangle pattern,and I cant wait to see how many pieces of art we are going to be creating this term.
