Make with MAAM
Play with patterns in this Valkyrie Mumbet inspired activity by our Looking to Learn educator Julia Einstein.
Colored papers, scissors, yarn, glue, markers, and colored pencils.
There are hundreds of patterns in the design of Valkyrie Mumbet by Joana Vasconcelos.
Vasconcelos is inspired by patterns from all over the world. She and her team gathered yards of textiles and fabrics, and crocheted and knit decorative trim to create this sculpture.
Draw a pattern. A pattern is any repeated shape (eg dots, flowers, checks, or lines).
Craft circles by applying glue onto paper and create shapes outlined by yarn.
Cut colorful forms!
Make a composition by assembling different patterns using your various elements.
Are you having fun playing with the patterns and shapes? Glue down the design you like best!
