Crafts Senior Final: Project Upcycle

Challenge: For this assignment you will be creating a functional piece out of recycled materials. You will have the day of the final to create your piece. Your piece should be functional, well crafted and done in a timely manner so that it is complete by the end of the period. You may not make anything that we have done in class this semester.

Materials that will be provided for you: newspaper, magazines, yarn, glue sticks, markers, colored pencils, stapler w/ staples, paper clips, elastics.


• What could the materials be used for?

• What techniques could be used?

• What kind of functional object are you going to make?
(clothes, house ware, … etc)

Sketch out 3-4 possible ideas for your piece.

Do I need to bring anything in?
        Figure out what other materials you might need!

        Plan out what you are going to work on the day of the final in class to ensure that you have a finished product by the end of the period.
