Craft design on a tourism theme

Learners are briefed to design and make a plastic clock for their folios. Using the Clyde Waterfront website for research, learners create a design for their product based on the local tourism industry. This project develops learners skills in using plastics whilst providing a cross curricular theme for their learning and opening opportunities to link with local community and businesses. The finished products will form an exhibition of work for internal and external partners to view/judge.
