When: Thursday 8th September, 4pm - 5pm
Presenter: Erica Noble
A Cricut is a programmable cutting machine that can work with a wide range of materials including paper, cardstock, vinyl, iron-on, felt, foam, leather and fabric. Some Cricut models can even work with metal, plastic and wood! You can use a Cricut machine to cut just about anything you would typically cut with scissors or a craft knife, and it’s a great tool to engage students in designing and making with non-resistant materials.
Join Erica Noble for this session as she takes us through some examples of how her students have used a Cricut cutting machine in textiles, and explores the realm of possibilities for incorporating a Cricut cutting machine into a design and textiles classroom.
