This will be a fun excercise lasting approximately 4 hours in total.

List of equipment
A range of motifs that you have drawn or painted in colour ideally, and a range of a variety of sizes.
The 16cm square can be any size but must be created with a set square to make the right angles acurate so the repeats will fit well together when reproduced. The size of the square works on A4 so the cost of photocopies is minimal and the activity can be quite quick and effective and will mean that the workshop can be quite short and the learning objectives can be achieved in a limited amount of time.
We can make a few types of repeat with this activity.
