Welcome to Maple Class printing display. Take a look at their artwork and see how they were inspired by nature. 

Maple class have been looking at the work of William Morris and how he was inspired by nature. The children made sketches of leaves, feathers, cobwebs and insects as you can see they made these into printed patterns.

After the initial sketches they selected their favourite to make a printing block. The block was made using polystyrene and card, they then transferred their chosen design onto the block ready to begin printing in the next lesson. The children practised the design pattern onto paper before printing onto calico. As you can see the prints worked well and the children really enjoyed the task as well as being inspired by artist William Morris they also learned how to print in his style.
