Today we read the chapter about Samoan tapa cloth in our shared text 'Fa'a Samoa'.
Samoan tapa cloth is called siapo and is a Samoan taonga.
We learned about how siapo is made.
We explored the different shapes and symbols that can make a siapo design by looking at examples from other texts.
We discussed how the designs can often be repeated symmetrical patterns.
We created our own siapo using brown sugar paper and pastel.
Here are some examples.
