One Childhood, One Chance

Art to Start

This week, we began our new topic 'People of the Past: Heroes and Villains'. This unit will look at the Victorians, the changing state of crime and punishment and the engineering of Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Yesterday, we kicked off the new topic with our regular art to start concept...

We choose as our starting point the Victorian artist and designer William Morris. During this era, he created wallpaper designs, stained-glass windows and tapestries. He was at the forefront of block printing and mass-producing patterned wallpaper and was particularly inspired by flowers and nature (trying to bring some of the countryside into the rapidly industrialising cities). Having looked at some of his floral designs, we produced our own square design that could be block printed!
