Melville Intermediate - Bone Carving Process

Earlier this year, at the end of Term One, we received a very special present from overseas, from our friends at Vonslid School, in Denmark.  They sent us a package of shirts and information about their city, Kolding, and also about their national sport, Handball.  You can see the original post here.  In return we thought long and hard about what we could send them as a thank you in return and were thinking about something special from New Zealand that we could make.  We are very lucky to have Matua Peter in Room Five at times to assist our learning.  Matua Peter is an artist and carver.  He has been working with a group of Room Five students creating a set of bone carving gifts, which are a traditional Maori gift for Denmark, which we are finishing in class this week.  This slide show gives you a peek at the design process.
