Year 8 Sensory Activity Mats

Year 8 are working on their sensory activity mat project. Students have chosen a target market that their activity mat will be aimed at and are now beginning to design their mats for the chosen clients. Students could choose between two target market groups; the elderly with Alzheimer’s/dementia or young children between the ages of 2 and 5.

Last week, they were practising their hand embroidery skills as well as using the sewing machines to make applique samples. Applique is the French word which means ‘to apply’. This technique is used to apply one fabric on top of another which is usually secured with stitching around the edge. This is the main decorative technique that students will use when making their activity mats.

After Christmas they will also be learning about how to tie dye the background fabric.
