Redesigning Food Packaging

By Tobi Meuwissen

As more schools adopt the timetabled approach of providing students with one term of DT followed by a term of Art, Tobi shares a project that could be used to link the two together. The project reuses cardboard food packaging and materials such as ink, coloured paper, paints and supplies that could be used to rebuild the packaging such as string and glue.

Using the reverse (plain) side of the packaging net gives students an opportunity to make their own creative response, whilst challenging both their logic and creative thinking skills. They will be encouraged to think about how they can build nets whilst experimenting with drawing, composition and type.

This resource demonstrates ways in which the outcomes can be adapted according to materials and also the level of ability of the audience.
