Shoe Making Fun.


Mrs Robinson attended Shoe School.


The class was held at Adam's Art Gallery.
So many choices of leather & bits'n'bobs.
Red & teal leather selected.
The start of pattern making.
Designs drawn & patterns cut.
Everything needed lining.

Every edge needed sealing!! Very time consuming.

Fitting time with Lou the shoe guru.

Glueing the straps on.

Fumes from glue very potent. 

Ready to add the sole & liner. 

2 days work completed.

Wonderful World of Wind.



For Multicraft Tech Extension we looked at a range of different things that required wind/air to make them operate.  We had a lot of fun designing & making windmills, wind chimes, model helicopters & planes, & kites.  






 Here we are hard at work. 

Making model helicopters.

Drilling holes in the wind chime tubes.

Knotting the wind chimes took a long time.

Leanardo da Vinci's helicopter design.

Building the bamboo frames for our kites.
