Our Art Process

For the school Art show Room 3 decided to make a piupiu and tipare which is a NZ costume. The original piupiu is made from flax but we used wool, straw and beads. We looked around for koru patterns in our school, the Internet and books. We sketched the patterns and then practised the shapes. We also used mathematical equipment to create patterns so we could make a pattern using our beads and straws. We even practised making knots. After we put the beads and straw on we traced our patterns of koru for the waist and head band and painted them. Our costume was ready for the Bits on the Side show or like we say 'Fashion Walk Show'. The most difficult parts were sketching and putting the wool thru' the beads. We worked really hard and enjoyed every step of the process.
