Life-cycle lampshades

8 Aug

The year 5’s at Sir John Cass Primary School drew each stage of the life cycle of a plant along a landscape piece of paper which we then turned into lampshades to illustrate the cyclical nature of the life of plants. The illustrations were produced using black ink and tissue paper to achieve a bold, graphic style inspired by Lucienne Day‘s botanical textile designs.
