We’ll study traditional Chinese paper cutting techniques and designs, to create our own creative zodiac signs. We’ll develop paper cutting craft knife skills through experimentation, study positive and negative space and consider how our work should be displayed. We’ll engage with a range of images and artefacts from different contexts, recognise the varied characteristics of different cultures and use and them to inform their creation of shadow puppet characters. We’ll develop prior-learned skills in the creation of our designs. Finally, we’ll work through a structured design process, conceptualizing and creating ‘sets’ for shadow puppets plays.
