Today the group enhanced fabric with printed patterns using a range of vegetable shapes. First we chopped the vegetables to see what shapes they made. Next, we designed a pattern which was then copied onto fabric.

today the group made a string block to ink and print next week. They glued string on a block in a shape they designed. While waiting for the glue to dry they went back to last week’s tile and used the printing press to print their design.
