Packaging Graphics
Graphic products often involve creating a package for an item. This project identifies the resources that should be considered prior to embarking on an activity using card, printed with a design and cut and folded to make a CD, or similar, package.

Packaging for a CD
3D printing
Additive manufacturing is a popular activity in schools, with the advent of relatively cheap 3D printers.

This project covers the use of a desktop 3D printer, using PLA filament, extruded through a heated nozzle.

The same safety considerations should be borne in mind when using other 3D printers, or rapid prototyping machines.

Painting and drawing
Producing a piece of artwork, such as a painting or drawing should still have an associated risk assessment. The materials below cover the practice of producing a painting or drawing, but also some other things that should be taken into account, such as the mounting of the image on a board.

Fabric printing
Getting pupils to work together to produce a section each of a large textile sheet can create a great wall hanging or bed cover.

The individual 'tiles' can be cut up and used as cushion covers or bags.

The use of symbols can help to communicate information, as in Adinkra printing.
