Activity: Stylish Silhouettes (Free materials)
Grace has adorned so many stylish costumes and posed in many designer outfits to change the way she looks, or how we look at fashion and this activity is about a different way of looking.
Using the templates, you can either copy them onto recycled card, or print them out onto thin card. Cut out the area that is shaded, you might need a bit of help with this.
The area removed is of an item of clothing. This should leave a hole in the image. Take a peek through!
Now, here's where its gets exciting, you are now going to create the clothing for Jimmy or Grace. Take a look around your home, and place the sheet of card over interesting colours, patterns, textures to fill in the gap.
‘Dress’ both artists in a selection of interesting, original and outrageous outfits!
Take a photo each time to create a photo fashion album of images.
If you aren't able to print the templates, try and copy them onto thin card, you could use an old cereal box. If you have any old magazines maybe try and cut out their silhouettes in the same way. Or you can email your address to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can post the cut out templates to you!
If you have a go at the activity, we'd love to see your creations on social media #NCmaking

Share Your Feedback, complete our Family Survey
Working digitally, means we miss all those lovely conversations we would usually have with you, sharing ideas, listening, and seeing how you respond to our workshops. It is difficult to get feedback when we don't see you and this would really help.
The survey takes about 10 mins or less to complete and it will really help our team to understand more about what you thought ready for when we are back together at Nottingham Contemporary. You can fill out our survey by clicking here.
We'd love to hear what you think.
