William Morris inspires Year 4

As part of our topic on the Victorians we have looked at the artist William Morris. We took his inspiration, which was nature, and tried to create our own repeating patterns.

At first we tried to draw our own repeating patterns but we did find it was tricky to make them match exactly.


Then we tried to paint our our individual patterns:

We really enjoyed making our patterns and they looked very effective!

We discussed how we really had to concentrate to ensure that each repeat was identical to the one before. We looked at how printing machines were developed through the Victorian era and wondered if this would make a more consistent pattern. In order to try this out for ourselves we went onto Purple Mash to create our own designs.

This was a really interesting way of creating repeating patterns, we found it hard to choose our favourites.

We then wanted to make our own painted repeating patterns and we decided to use a tile to do this. We carved a picture into a polystyrene tile, rolled paint onto the tile and pressed it onto a large piece of paper. We continued this until we had covered our paper in the repeating pattern. This was a really fun lesson and here are our finished pieces of work, including a close up of each pattern.
