Toy Making character design


Toy-making is a form of product design and students will apply careful consideration and critical thinking to produce their individual toys. This workshop first leads students through character design to introduce them to the creative process and reveal the systematic planning and design skills required. Early lessons place emphasis on the importance of two-dimensional sketch techniques to visualise ideas, and later sessions allow for the application of problem-solving design methods to create the final product. Through working with the modelling clay, students actively learn form control and fine motor skills as they conceptualise the three-dimensional forms of their toys


Students will: • discover how toy making is part of product design and how it has influenced things around us • learn how to transform their two-dimensional (2D) ideas to three dimensional (3D) forms. • grasp the concept of 3D basic volumes, sphere, cube, pyramid and cone, basic 3D form control skills to construct objects. • plan their desired product in a step-by-step process by applying critical thinking • continuously use-problem solving skills throughout the learning journey • discover different material properties, e.g. soft texture mediums clay like materials, bendable material like wires to achieve the structure of their creations • learn basic colour study of how primary colours able to form secondary colours • work as teams in planning for project presentation (recommended more for secondary school level)
