Since my last completion of my art module in my portfolio, I have made and completed a junk kouture dress which consisted of recycled cupcake cases, music note sheets and recycled clothing.
After we had completed the Junk Kouture project, we began to work on another project for the Laurentic. In order to begin this task, we arranged to travel to the Sliabh Sneacht community center. We met with a woman who was helping us create our work for the Laurentic who was called Bernie.
The week before we were meant to travel to the Community Centre, each student thought of an idea on how to remember the Laurentic but in an artistic way. My idea was to put names of all the people who died aboard the ship, along with their date of birth, inside a poppy, for remembrance.
On the day we arrived, we were split around the classroom each assigned a specific task.
Mine was to sew strands of wool together to make an oceanic effect. By the end of the day, i had a few sewn which would then be placed onto a larger sized picture to create a beautiful view of the SS Laurentic.
