Embroidered Portrait

This term, a class of year 6 students have been learning about ways to embroider with specific reference to contemporary artists. They investigated and were inspired by Maurizio Anzeri, who creates very mathematical patterns of embroidery over photos of people. Students used their own portrait to embroider and some incorporated simple geometric patterns, flowers to beadwork. Students were able to apply skills that are often assumed as too difficult or beyond their generation and applied them within an artwork that was thoughtfully designed.
