Who was featured in the making of our Archibull:
This was a project in which the whole school (teachers and students) were involved. However, the majority of the project was completed by 6E. They learnt new skills during the process such as knitting, crocheting, applique, felting, blanket stitch, all of which can be seen on our finished cow.
Theme: Wool - Paddock to Product
Concept: Studying wool from the sheep's back to high end fashion
and how we can promote sustainability by reusing and recycling
this natural product.

used. These included:

What makes your Archibull unique:
He is unique in that he represents a variety of techniques used when producing woollen products, demonstrates the stylistic influences listed above as well as providing a visual representation of our theme "Paddock to Product".
